Nuclear

We're running out of oil.  That's not news. 

We use a massive amount of electricity.  That's not news.

Of the 104 nuclear reactors now operational in the United States, ground was broken for all of them in 1974 or earlier.

China has 27 new nuclear power plants under construction.

France’s nuclear electrical plants provide France with over 78 percent of it's total electrical needs, and it is the largest exporter of nuclear energy in the world.  Oh, and France's electrical rates are among the lowest in Europe.  They generate so much electricity that some of the plants shut down on weekends due to lack of electrical need.

The point here is this:  “The China Syndrome” was a second rate thriller movie released in 1979, not a fargin’ documentary.

Criminy.
