Actually, in an earlier post I had mentioned that IMHO I think we need to get over our fear of the word nuclear and develop more nuclear power. I might be in the minority but I actually think that development of nuclear energy and education in the field is the best way to alleviate problems with older plants as well as our dependence on oil.

I am not offended and I hope no one else is either Healthy debate is good. My arguments are opinions as well. I certainly don't have a degree in any of these fields, but when I do I'll get back to you

I have heard that France is leading the way with nuclear power..I have to look it up, but I have read that they meet most of their energy needs by nuclear plants...

Also, Knitting Guy... thanks for letting me know about the difference between Sour and Sweet Crude...I have a friend that works at Valero (one of the evil oil companies lol) and he said that they (Valero) has invented more sophisticated refining techniques and that much of the oil they refine is of the "lower quality" sour crude.. he said that that type is what we are getting from the Gulf of Mexico find... now that's what I'm talkin bout!! good ole American know how.. we can lick this problem if we put our minds to it!!
