    To "Bob Van Velkinburgh" we are trying to develop clean renewable energy sources, but the liberals and environmentalists keep blocking the Nuclear Power plant from being built in Utah.

    Everyone says, "try to develop clean, nonpolluting, sustainable energy sources." Well, where are they? Serious efforts have been going on for 40 years, and look where we are.

    To have any hope of reducing our use of oil, an energy source MUST be able to power semi-trucks, trains, and commercial vehicles. In 40 years of trying, the world has only come up so far with natural gas.

    When you think about clean energy, think about big trucks. They're not ever going to run on solar panels, batteries, or wind turbines.

    Great idea, but it won't happen in Utah, where fossil fuel barons have a stranglehold on the governor and the legislature.
