Christopher Dodd, Global Warming & Nuclear Power
Five-term Democratic Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, right, of Connecticut has announced his candidacy for president. He is very good on global warming because he is unambiguously pro nuclear power. Dodd, 62, is the fifth Democrat to officially declare his candidacy. We like Chris Dodd on climate change. He is serious.
He clearly states on his website: "My record is clear. I have supported nuclear power and the obligation of the federal government to take responsibility for nuclear waste...No one knows the costs and benefits of nuclear energy more than the residents of my state. Connecticut has two operating nuclear facilities and two permanently shut down facilities that are undergoing decommissioning. Nuclear energy provides more than 45 percent of the electricity generated in Connecticut."
