    One nuclear power plant would replace everything talked about in this article. Why put windmills, solar panels, and geothermal piping all over the landscape when we could get more energy from one plant on 50 acres?

    Have the 'America's Red Rock Wilderness' areas been reviewed for renewable energy potential? Hasn't suwa
    already been responsible for locking up America's
    largest reserves of low-sulfur coal with their Grand
    Staircase Escalante Monument. What is lost in that area for geothermal and wind generation? What about the viewsheds of their 9.5 million acres? Won't suwa
    nimby any projects visible from their 'pristine' homelands?
