IF YOU WANT YOUR ELECTRIC RATES TO GO UP
EVEN HIGHER, GET A NUCK. COAL IS SO PLENTIFUL
IN THE USA, IT WILL LAST FOR YEARS AND YEARS.

Check out the stark reality of Chernobyl. Fossil fuels are depleting the Ozone layer. We need to be proactive and continue to produce cleaner and safer fuels and energy sources.

There are several anti-nuclear groups out there and the Physicians for Social Responsibility is very informative.

Coal power is the the most economical practical electrical power source. We have more coal than Saudi Arabia has oil!

So that's the answer? Use up a non-renewable resource while depleting the ozone layer.

Kill off all the buffalo, put waste in the drinking water and destroy the air we breathe.

Why didn't we listen to the Democrats?

This is not a political issue
Anyone one should want what's best for the
world and should figure out ways to be
Economical and Safe now and for the future
we don't want to use resources that will in return
Harm the envirement and their are ways to save
the buffalo and water and air !

"This is not a political issue"

It becomes a political issue when funding is lost.

The House Republicans are generally skeptical about human-caused climate change.

Nuclear power is a lot safer than most realize. The problem in Japan is there was a disaster. Coal adds a lot more toxins to the atmosphere, and is a fossil fuel so there are a lot of things to cover either way, but I would go for rather than against nuclear power

using now to run your computer. if you cant fix it dont kick it.

Its ok for tree huggers to point fingers and have advise on how people should live and conserve energy but at the same time they don't practice what they preach.
A good example would be Al Gore.

And in case anybodys wondering I am on a exercise bike that is attached to a generator that will charge the green battery on my computer!

"Nuclear power is a lot safer than most realize. The problem in Japan is there was a disaster."

Several nuclear power plants lie in the region of the New Madrid Quake. There are no guarantees that an accident will not take place in the near future in that area.

A nuclear power plant in Minn. leaked 1300 gallons of radioactive water into the Mississippi River in 1982. How much of that got into the food supply? Just a sampling of an "accident". Tons of nuclear waste is buried beneath our soil.

If I had an answer to safely supplying energy needs to a world where energy consumption is growing 2.3 % per year, we would have no need for discussion in the first place.

I am simply interested in raising awareness and support for those involved in setting safety guidelines for existing and any future reactors. To each his own as to personal interest.

We need to continue searching for alternative and safe energy.

As I said before, Physicians for Social Responsibility is very informative. You can sign-up and have a voice in this matter.

Another liberal with her head up her arse. Drill baby drill. Who really care's? In 1776 the population was 2.6 million people. Today it's 307 million. That's over 35 million every 18 years. In 100 years we will be over a billion people. You really think that windmill is going to supply enough power for that many people? Do you really want to be around the next 100 year, which you won't be but your kids could. God is in control of the destruction of what he made, not you, not the government. You don't want nukes, you don't want oil, you don't want coal. It's easy to sit here and scold as you do, and you answer is we need a cleaner power source. So you think it's all the republicans fault? What a stupid person you are.

Liberals want to blame Republicans ?

Well that's like robbing Peter to pay Paul .

You liberals are making big Fools Of Yourselves.

The blame game is getting old and it time to think .

Problem Solving not Blame Game.

Liberals need to grow up.

Awww...don't worry. We'll do all we can when it comes to clean air, uncontaminated food and water sources, and any other issue that threatens the health and wellbeing of ourselves and our future children. We will include all of you in those protections, because we care.
