I have little doubt who is benefitting from Obama’s plans to expand drilling in NA waters and start building nuclear plants. Could somebody get the prez a pair of knee pads?
With all of this supposed commitment to greening the American power grid, why turn to more oil and start up the nuclear crap again when there’s so much potential available power from geothermal with no GH emissions post-construction? Make the NA auto industry retool with all that bailout money and start putting out electric cars using an infrastructure like Mr. Agassi’s (see below).
Think of all of the R&D and infrastructure development involved with this. Think of all the jobs it would create. Think of all those battery patents the big three have been buying up for the last three decades! They could finally put them to use!
