Pragmatism needs to overcome green zealotry on this though the development and consequent implementation of cost-efficient solar and wind technology is really the only way to get out of the cycle of using some technology until it comes back to bite us in the butt and should be the primary focus of future spending.

Once the oil shortages start, it will have no other choice. At least no practical ones.

One major accident could leave an entire state uninhabitable for decades or even centuries. If France ever has a major reactor failure half of Europe may have to be evacuated! We can not even agree on how or where to store the atomic waste we have already generated, much less the waste from future nuclear plants. I also think NIMBY (not in my backyard) will be the major obstacle to any future construction. There should be no publicly backed loan guarantees for any nuclear power plants. Profit should never ever trump the safety of our nation and her people!
