    Now you're on to something. We would have electricity out the wazoo and I could really get behind the whole electric car thing.

    If GM builds those electric engine the way they have built some of their gas engine, failure will soon follow that lineup also and there is no free lunch. Sooner or later we will all pay more for electricity as a result of this change. Unless the car manufacturers find a way to make the electric cars and truck get great mileage in the cold they will be doomed for us up north in the winter.

    Compact, refined home nuclear is the only way electric will become mainstream unless there is a magical breakthrough in solar panels and batteries.

    No way the hippies allow nuclear. They've been poo pooing that for decades. All our current sites are aging out and they don't allow us to build new ones.

    nuclear power is more of an initial cost issue that no one wants to pay for
    not a "hippie" issue

    The hippies are predictable at least. If you disagree it's because you're not enlightened like them lol. The board rules dictate that I don't show you how full of crap you are. Politics are not allowed and that would be the eventual destination of the topic of the of why nuclear power is poo pooed.
