If Sen. Reid, Al Gore and the environmentalists were sincere about their desire to reduce CO2 emissions from electricity-producing power plants, they'd run, not walk, to embrace the new modular nuclear power generators: Hyperion, NuScale, Toshiba 4S, Adams Atomic Engines, B&W mPower, TerraPower, and the Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors also in the hopper. Recycle the spent nuclear fuel, near-zero emissions, small land-use footprint (unlike solar and wind), nearly inexhaustible fuel supply, proliferation-resistant, reliable 24/7, controllable, affordable.

Thanks to Jimmy Carter we get 50% of our electricity from coal - which he predicted would happen by 2000 - instead of already meeting our CO2 goals (if it really is a "pollutant", as some claim) if we had just built those nuclear plants ready for construction in the 1970's. The Law of Unintended Consequences strikes again!
