    it's a simple idea:

    build enough new nuclear power plants per state to provide FREE POWER to all US citizens
    -it would be a massive jobs program
    -it would essentially be like giving everyone FREE 'GAS' to power an electric car thus killing the gas car industry

    voila...problem solved

    VOTE BEN MARBLE FOR PRESIDENT 2012! :lol:

    you want a nuclear plant next to your house?

    and do you have a way to safely dispose of nuclear waste?

    i'll wait.

    Nuclear is 20th century technology. We need to move into the 21st. Fusion is the answer to long-term, sustainable, clean and, once the upfront costs are taken care of, inexpensive power. Contact your representitives and urge them to earmark more funds for R&D to see if we can't cut down the 40-50 year expected wait time until commercial power is feasible.

    For more info go to:

    ITER - the way to new energy OR

    Department of Energy - Fusion
