    Only stupid people or fools don't know that nuclear power plants are prime targets for terrorists.

    Newer designs for nuclear reactors are much safer and cleaner:

    "Even a human engineered breach (such as a terrorist attack) of an MSR cannot cause any significant release of radioactivity."

    Molten Salt Reactors: The Future of Green Energy?

    And this from the folks at MIT:

    Safer, Cheaper Nuclear Power

    Again based on a molten salt reactor design.

    I'd say wood burning stoves, but the government restricts new ones now.

    I, for one, wouldn't mind a bit of warming actually, It was -37 this morning! That is f****ing cold, for you southerners. But, hey, Whatever happens, happens. I've got plenty of warm clothes and a couple vehicles that can handle the cold, so I'm good. Produce might get a little spendy though.... LOL
    This whole "climate change" thing is just one big joke to me. I mean really, WTF can we do about it anyway? Move? No one really knows what is going to happen, the best anyone can come up with are computer models based on "historical" data that is based on limited experience, guess work, and assumptions.
