  • One of the things America needs to be the leader on is Battery technology.  We want to really break our dependence on foreign oil, we need to begin the transition to Hybrid, and then Pure Electric Vehicles.  High-capacity, low volume batteries, and the ability to manufacture them in massive quantities is a key component of that.

    We also need to build the infrastructure to power these vehicles and that means expanding our electrical generation capacity.

    While wind and solar can provide a small amount of power compare to the space needed to generate said power, I think Nuclear Power needs to be encouraged on a large scale.

    One of the reasons I voted for McCain last year was his call to build 45 new nuclear power plants within 5 years, and 100 total inside ten years.  We need those power plants generating American Power, today!

  • I was nuke reactor operator for 10 years.  We haven’t placed online a new nuclear plant in the US in well over 30 years.  You could technically build a new plant in 3-4 years, but the certification process takes around 10 years, mainly due to EPA regs.  The cost of building one went from about $1 billion in 2000 to over $13 billion now.  Our politicians can’t be bothered to see the effects of our overspending 2-3 years out, what makes you think they will do something that will make us more secure when they won’t be in office to take the credit?

    And green energy is a joke if the state has to pay people to buy solar panels, hybrids, etc…  Who pays for that?  Us, of course.  People are developing these techs.  Let the market evolve instead of driving it from the government.
