As an Ironworker in the area of the Nuke plant I would love to see this pass all the tree hugger and miss informed public opinions. If we can't build CLEAN COAL PLANTS..... and peaking units, RENEWABLE" energy sources etc. can't keep up, then the only other alternative is fusion generated power. Think of all the jobs these plants will create. I guess until the anti nuke people have to go with out light, heat or the ability to get out of the dog days of Florida summers they will not consider the possibilities. Want a second opinion, ask France where 80% of there power comes from!
