    NPR & Democrats are now advocating placing Nuclear Power Plants inside neighborhoods.

    Interesting, but you still have the nuclear waste problem. We need to speed up research into fusion power, IMO. Little radiation, no GHGs, nearly limitless fuel. What's not to love, except the projected 40-50 year timeline until we see a working system? I think we should have a national push, like the Space Race, to shorten that timeline.
