67. Yes, indeed.
Because coal is the way to go? I think the idea is that we should be searching for different alt energy solutions. People who nay-say nuclear technology seem to be using 1975 models when comparing to other types of energy. I can't imagine how ridiculous it would seem to shift to solar/wind based on the relative prices of those alt energy technologies in 1975. Here, how about you do some of your own research like I did and come to your own conclusions. My research is posted here:
