It seems as though the GOP has come to the consensus that environmentalists are no more than tree hugging, oil hating, windmill builders that have come to take away jobs, and that anything that comes out of their mouths can be disregarded. Many conservatives do not realize that clean energy is not limited to algae. There is a source of energy more efficient than solar power, wind power, algae,and natural gas combined, and it happens to be nuclear.
Instead of complaining about gas being $4 a gallon I believe a push to expand the number of America’s nuclear power plants. I believe it would, or at least should, be an area in which both parties agree on. Also, did I mention that Bill Gates is a strong supporter of the future of nuclear power?
Thankfully the movement towards nuclear energy is finally starting to pick up, although I do not know much about the negative impacts this brings. If anybody has any information regarding this type of energy I strongly encourage you to help inform me!
