More importantly, nuclear power and hydrogen fuel cells can save us 
from crippling dependance on global oil. We already have all the 
fissile material  (Pu-239) and breeder material (DU) to build another 
100 nuclear plants in the U.S.  With plentiful electricity we can 
make hydrogen by hydrolysis. Hydrogen fuel-cell powered motor 
vehicles emit only water, so out health threatening air pollution 
problem will be eliminated.  Oil dependence can be reduced and 
eventually eliminated.

When I mention these facts in polite company the usual response is. 
"But what about Chenobyl?" and "What are we going to do with the waste?"
We know these are bogus questions, but we need to do a better job of 
educating the public and the politicians.


P.S. The small increase in average global temperature from 1970 to 
2000 (about one degree Fahrenheit) is correlated perfectly with 
increased radiant energy from the sun over which we have no control.
