I shudder to think of how many families are torn asunder by sending our fighting men and women into combat in oil producing countries that are not our friends. As for the Billions of dollars that have been spent on alternative energy, some of it is the Governments own half assed inability to use the resources at hand to vet the spending of this money. The prime example bloviates such as yourself use is Solyndra. The DOE has no experience in analyzing a business plan. The GAO another Government entity does have experience with the analysis of a business plan. All they would have had to have done was go down the street and ask the GAO to take a look at the companies who applied for the Government funds. If the business plan is solid, give them a try, if not say sorry.
Do your homework Watkins, there are currently 28 nuclear plants that are in some stage of construction. All are based on some kind of tweaked Light Water Reactor technology. Yeah, there are a lot of alternative nuclear technologies that can be used. None are in this country.
