Maybe that would be "Green" Nuclear Power

Today on the GOP radio broadcast, Republican senator from Tennessee LAMAR!! Alexander proposed building 100 nuclear power plants as an answer to the energy crisis.

But, given the degrading of the regulatory apparatus over the last 30 years, it's hard to believe that the federal government can adequately regulate the nuclear power plants we already have.

Let alone a hundred more!

Interesting. I knew there had to be a negative counterpoint to Lamar's opposition to mountaintop removal coal mining. I guess this is his idea of renewable energy. Let's only hope he wants to put all 100 nuclear plants here in Tennessee!
