    I think it is a good idea, we have been a little behind the times on this issue for awhile.

    Though many of the wingnuts will hate to admit it, France does a great job concerning Nuclear Energy. They have 59 Nuclear Power Plants which between them power 78% of France.

    They also have the lowest electricity cost in Europe.

    The last nuclear plant cost $700MM, the vast majority of the added costs comes from regulation.

    While this is a step in a good direction and sure to rile his lunatic fringe base, he needs to cut a lot of the unnecessary regulation.

    I heard a news story a few weeks ago about all this, Japan I believe is building the most right now . We should have already been building them.

    I wouldn't be surprised. Japan also happens to be the most green country in the world. They know that we must keep our planet healthy and as free from pollution as possible. Their lives would be stake otherwise in the past and perhaps the future.
