Check out www.focusfusion.org - if those guys ca get their machine to work, there probably won't be a need forlarge scale fision. Small fission reactors for space based things will still make sense. And if they don't get it to work, the Thorium reactors (and pebble bed and other new reactors) should be good enough. Heck, if France can do it, so can we (and they use fast breeders, if I'm remembering my facts...)
Or it's a program created by a kid in some school lab, trying to pas the Turing test for AI.
Rich L - well, I did say "maybe" with respec to San Diego :) Have you seen this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVdMySWfAIQ When someone says "flaming liberal" this is a great example.
You're obviously not for freedom or liberty. Maybe instead of thinking about "new laws" to place more restrictions on people (and businesses) in a supposedly free society, you could invent a new powersource - like the people at focusfusion.org are attempting - giving us more mobility, more choices, more freedom. More laws equate to less freedom. You may have noticed what happens to communist societies - see "USSR, circa 1990" for a good example.
Yeah, time to put him/her on "ignore." At least with Hillinger, formerly QR, there's some actual discussion...
Oh no, now sgrossman will hav to stop eating to make up for the inadvertent carbon footprint he caused! The horrors.
I commute 30 miles to work - ride a bike to work??? Maybe a Harley, when it's warm and sunny. Did I mention I live near Cleveland, Ohio? Where this past winter the temperature was below freezing pretty much for 4 months? How will solar panels keep my house warm? Darn, forgot to mention Im an engineer, and looked into the solar panel thing. $50K in panels plus storage/conversion (DC to AC, you know, what everything in the house runs on) will NEVER pay back compared to the $80/month I pay the utility company. And I don't spend money just to feel good. There's more to life than "carbon footprint"
How about this: We take the $11 BILLION PER YEAR spent on "climate change" research and development and apply it towards nuclear fission and fusion development. No new laws.
Yeah, that'll work. In San Diego, maybe.

I'd rather just have the corporations that hire illegals lose any preferred tax status - e.g. those farm conglomerations would lose their farm subsidies. They'd also still have to replace any illegals with US citizens (or legal permanent residents). At the household level the same could apply - you have a multimillion dollar house and you're getting $50K per year in tax deductions on the interest payment, but you employ illegal aliens to clean the place? Poof! Not more tax deductions for you.

I thought Cruz said he's willing to give his Canadian citizenship up. Personally, I think he should have already done so, along with pointing out everyone else in Congress who still has dual citizenship.
