I complain about government a lot, and one response that I get often is, "If it weren't for government, who would build the roads?!"

Well, people, I suppose..

But the other side of the coin is that nuclear energy is the most directly subsidized form of energy by our government. I say directly subsidized because we subsidize our cheap foreign oil by spending over a trillion dollars a year on our foreign empire.

When you subsidize something you get more of it.

So next time somebody asks why our country is addicted to cars, cheap energy and oil, guess who you get to blame?

Smart to operate a nuke plant on an earthquake fault.

As the old bumper stickers said "Diablo Canyon has a lot of faults".

Diablo power-plant IS built on a fault-line...
The fault-line IS at the shore`s edge...
An earth-quake IS going to hit the Calif. coast & there may or may not be a tsunami...but,
Diablo power-plant IS going to fail & spread it radio-active waste on Santa Barbara.
Knowing the horror of being burned alive by radiation & the intense sickness created by nuclear waste, how can people just sit & wait for the inevitable?

for the same reason they keep electing the same old faces in California - because they can't see beyond tomorrow.
