Bold moves needed: Nuclear instead of Coal

Look out -- run for your lives -- The bozos in congress have passed another bill:
In a 381-37 vote, the House endorsed a bill that would require mine operators to put more oxygen supplies underground and move rescue teams closer to mines.
I guess we are all saved. Hail to congress.

Yet what we really need are bold moves. Congress needs to endorse Nuclear Power. Not only is it safer than coal (no miners are killed) it is also cleaner for the environment! Take that to the bank. No more ground level particulates or sulfur dioxide to clog lungs and kill trees. And Nuclear Energy generates no CO2, well, I'm for it anyway. The benefit of less pollution trumps the benefits of global warming.
