10. The only reason these "proposed" plants are even being discussed
is because they were part of Cheney's secret energy meetings. And we know how everything that came out of those meetings has been a disaster: Enron and Arnie, Iraq, a failed Venezuela coup.

So even with all the financial guarantees and streamlined approval and all the hype from Hill & Knowlton, the reality is expressed in the caption on the graphic from the NYT article:
"... A handful of utilities have expressed interest ... But none have made a firm commitment yet, and industry experts doubt that more than a few of the 27 possible reactors ... will be built anytime soon ..."
