More greens defect to nuclear power

Well, truth be told quadrat, we DO have lots and lots and lots of coal. But the fuel costs for nukes ($/Mw-hr) are less than half that of coal ... however, the regulatory costs more than make up the difference. Again, the real issue is marketing not technical or engineering 'problems'.

The U.S. needs to do a Peenemünde-like evacuation of Areva in France of some of their top notch nuke advertising brainiacs and bring them back here and turn them loose! Then Katie-bar-the-door!! Wink1
