I am not sure if Dr. Long is a good doctor.  My issues
with him is his inability for present clear evidence
of what he says.  Generally, I do not take his or
anyones opinions as facts.  I also do not expect to
take my opinions as facts.  Poor science and poor
thinking does not make for good arguements.  Saying
something over and over again that is not valid does
not make it so.  Do you have any problems with these

Personnaly, I would like to see new nuclear power
plant constructions for a many reasons.  I would also
like to see recycling of fuel.  However, the deciding
factor will be economics and political.  Since the
generation of nuclear power in the hands of
corporations, the driving force for new construction
will be the profits that can be made over the life of
the plant.  My feeling is that if (1) coal is cheap to
mine; (2) coal plants are cheap to build; (3) cheap to
operate; and (4) last as long as nuclear power plants,
we will see more coal in the energy mix.  Recycling is
both a political issue than and economic one.  If it
is cheaper to mine for uranium than to recycle, we are
not encouraging recycling.
