    How in the world can you make the claim that "renewables are cheap and growing"!? Growing obviously, but cheap? Solar and wind power are NOT ecoonomically competative, that's why there are federal subsidies going to the progressive's crony buddies.

    Cellulosic alcohol exists only in research laboratories, not in commerically available quantities, despite the decree of congress that gas companies will use it in increasing amounts. Strange, who would have thought that politicians making a decree wouldn't automtically make it so?

    "...the public's desire for sustainable energy will lead to nuclear power becoming a key part of the mix, along with coal and other traditional sources."

    Water... where will the water come from to support nuclear with Utah gaining another 2 million residents by 2030? Coal plants? California is shutting off its Utah coal contracts, and coal plants are converting to natural gas... the future of Utah coal is doomed.

    People are in denial about the most fundamental issues facing nuclear and coal. They are shrinking industries now that natural gas and renewables are cheap and growing.
