Senator Ethanol Decries McCain On Nuke Plants

obama seal tinkerbellDan Collins at protein wisdom calls it Obama announces plans for gravity dams, perpetual motion machines, cold fusion. It’s kinda hard to beat that, unless one includes cars powered by fairy dust and the lights in their rumps

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) – U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama on Tuesday criticized his rival John McCain‘s proposal to encourage the building of 45 new nuclear reactors by 2030.

Obama, a Democrat, said the Republican candidate lacked a plan for storage of the waste. It was among several energy-strategy ideas that Obama said were “not serious energy policies.”

Oh, Senator Neophyte? It is actually codified in law, specifically, the 1982 Nuclear Waste Policy, which specified that a nuclear waste repository was to be designated, finalized, and operational by 1992. But, the Democrats and their extremist environmental base have held up the choice, which is the best choice, Yucca Mountain. I remember doing a paper on this in Public Policy graduate class, and because of the ground and limited ground water, as well as many other factors, Yucca was the best of many choices. I’d show it to you, but, the data was formatted on a Tandy PC on 3 1/4 floppies, will not work on anthing.

Obama supports using federal research and development dollars to explore whether nuclear waste can be stored safely for reuse.

That’s already been done, Senator Neophyte. I suppose it was hard to learn that during your short tenure in the US Senate before you really got your campaign for president going. You know, that campaign that you said would not run? But, you know, his ideas are as green as Kermit the Frog.

PS: yes, I know Obama gave up the seal, but, it’s too much fun!

    why is it that mcCain is doing so poorly ?
    well perhaps people think his solution of building to nukes a year for the next 20 years is unrealistic.
    The center of American politics supports Obama

    Well it’s over then. Let’s call it right now.

  4. It just seemed appropriate, Steve 🙂

    Why is building nuke plants wrong, John? Got a better idea?

    You’re right, MBP. Might as well not bother with the general election in November, if we go by the polls. What John forgets is, Kerry was leading much of the contest, too.
