    We need a Manhattan type project to move forward to the next generation of fuels. This is more than an economic problem, it is a national security issue.

    As the CEO of Shell said on the C-SPAN a few weeks ago - the stone age didn't end because we ran out of stones and the oil age won't end because we run out of oil.

    Would Obama lift regulations on nuclear power plants, and allow us to drill our own oil, because we have not run out of it, yet.....

    I think we should do prudent drilling, especially offshore and build more refineries. Nuclear power is an option, but I'm concerned about the safety issue.

    I'm not a fan of much of anything from France, but they are doing well with nuclear, if I recall correctly.

    I don't believe France ever had a Three Mile Island incident, that I remember.

    The 3 Mile Island incident, while alarming at the time, has turned out to be a blessing.

    Instead of a reason to fear nuclear power, it made it safer.

    As long as nuclear energy can be produced safely, I'm all for it.
