Lieberman calls for moritorium on nukes
In light of the nuclear meltdowns in Japan, Lieberman has called for a moratorium on nukes.
That is not the only reason to re-think nuclear energy. Due to technological advances and discoveries of vast stores of natural gas, it is now our cheapest source of energy. The fact is that the U.S. is rich in natural gas. It would cost half as much to power our trucks and fleets, compared to diesel. The present administration has green energy blinders on and would wish natural gas just go away, even though natural gas is the cleanest by far of the fossil fuels. It is the duty of the press to begin to ask, if not badger, the Obama Administration why they are ignoring this great resource, which is environmentally friendly, very cheap and could go a long ways to making the U.S. energy independent... not to mention increase employment.
