Fred Thompson, Global Warming & Nuclear Power

Fred Thompson, right, has a long history of supporting nuclear power. This means he is good on the global warming issue. He supported the Tennessee Clinch River Breeder Reactor. He seems like a visionary in retrospect. Bring it back. We need it now.

He just announced his candidacy for the highest office in the land. If he wins we hope he will be more successful in the development of new nuclear power plants than he was with the breeder reactor. It was never built after big money was sunk into it. Hopefully he will also revisit breeder reactor technology. And to think our fearless leader lobbied against this technology way back in the early 1980s. Global warming was not on the radar back then either though.
