Nuclear power for Indiana?

Jan 14, 2014 Full story: The Indianapolis Star 6

Indiana hasn't tried to build a nuclear power plant since two separate efforts fizzled in the 1980s over high costs, nearly bankrupting one of the companies in the process.

No, Indiana needs to keep forking over their hard-earned money to the wiseguys of the EastCoast (i.e., faithful colonial servants of the City of London's banking Elites).

What good are serfs if not for serfing?

Lazy flyover slobs. No nukular for yew!

So, let me be a bit more clear.
.
When you plonk down 4 USD for one gallon of greasy goo, how does it get split? About 1 dollar each for production costs, federales, petroshaikhs, and last (but not least) the colonial subsidaries of the Citi of London's Banking Oligarchy owned British-Anglo Petroleum-Oil.
.
Every joule that arises from nukular is one joule that does arise from the burning of petroleum. Hence the risible MSM and alternative media's campaign against nukular.
.
Now, if Hoosiers get themselves some nuclear powerplants, there will be no forking of 3 out of every 4 dollars to the Saudis, AngloBritish, and District of Columbia.
.
tl;dr, No nukular for yew, lazy flyover slobs!

BDV,
I know you are pro nuclear and I am as well. So I guess I don't get why you keep bringing up oil as an a big issue as it relates to electricity production. Oil is responsible for <1% of total electric production in the US, heck even biomass produces more electricity than oil.
That said it is still the largest source for transportation and a large part of home heating.
The 4 biggest producers of electricity are:
Coal 42%
Natural Gas 25%
Nuclear 19%
Hydro 8%
These are 2011 numbers so I would assume that the natural gas number has increased and the coal number has decreased by about the same amount.

Nuke = insanity

It is OBVIOUS that human beings cannot manage this process.

Shite, the nuke waste we already produced, and now store ON TOP of the reactors, because it has no where else to go....enough to kill the planet 720 times!

Why should we shut them down? Here is the answer......
