damn, may have to change my argument

so it looks like i may have to change my argument regarding bringing back nuclear power. you are aware, i am sure, that greenhouse gases have been given the blame for global warming. so i, as a good nuke, have contended on many occasions that we should build nuclear power plants and scrap the fossil fuel plants that generate so many stack gases. damn german and swiss scientists, now i'll have to come up with a whole different argument. of course, i shall keep it in reserve, because the loony enviro's haven't had a chance to try debunking this report. they'll probably just stick their fingers in their ears and sing lalalala and not hear anything that doesn't meet their preconceived ideas. ho ho ho, santa doesn't need to go to miami for a suntan anymore.

I coulda told you it was the sun. A better argument for dumping fossil fuels is energy independence from the Freakin' Saudis. You've heard of them right

as a matter of fact, i have. however, that isn't the point here. the hue and cry, the caucophany of noise has been around the fossil fuels burned by suv's and power plants. so, my point is, i have to conjure up another reason for nuclear besides fossil fuel augmented greenhouse gases.

i have long been a proponent of a nationalized fully funded research program to develope alternative power supplies. mainly fuel cell technology. if they could develope a viable fuel cell that didn't take as much gas to generate, or take out viable farmland as a supply, as in methanol, then GO for it. let the govt foot the bill, and give the technology away for use inside the U.S., and sell it for use outside the U.S.

We could use the valuable farm land that we're paying tobacco farmers not to grow toabacco on, and convert to to corn for ethonol production. That way this group of farmers gets paid twice to grow one crop and the value of their land increases. how bout that?
