"Cause I'm like Mike_W - I'm in favor of nuclear power. But the petroleum companies won't let that happen, now will they? "

How, exactly could they stop it from happening?

America, the greedy. There was a survey taken in the 90's about the enviorment and gas prices.

The exception: the U.S. I only wish that the current gas prices funded enviormental programs, not the concubine of some Suadi prince. Yes, use nuclear and hydro-elcetric, the later is especialy good. What about geo-thermal, thats how Iceland produces electricity. I know that this isn't practicle everywhere in the U.S., but it could probably power Hawaii and posibly Montana and Wyoming as well.

Got a link for that poll?

No, I recived the information from a book. It was by Bill Bryson, a scrupulus reshercher who I can't imagine fudging evidence.
