Anybody interested in a real economic recovery?
Original post made by Greg, Southgate, on Aug 19, 2010
We need to exploit our resources, especially our domestic nuclear energy and natural gas and oil. Nuclear is there for the taking, a real low-hanging fruit. There are many, many good paying jobs in the nuclear industry.
And yet we dither, perhaps hoping (beyond hope) that the economy will suddenly rise, like a phoenix from its ashes. It is beyond ashes, it is slag, and no wings will grow.
It is inexplicable to me why we have decided to become masochists to the irrational environmentalists.
It is way past time to act, and use the econonomic engines that we still have available to us. The biggest bang for the buck is nuclear and natural gas and coal. Nukes don't produce CO2, so take your pick. Note: I was not paid by Boone Pickens to say this, it is just a simple reality.
