Straight talk common sense from Senator McCain

Senator McCain has called for a rational step toward making America more energy independent by calling for the construction of 45 new Nuclear power plants.

This should also greatly please anyone who is firmly committed to the reduction of carbon emissions.

McCain said the 104 nuclear reactors currently operating around the country produce about 20 percent of the nation's annual electricity needs.

"Every year, these reactors alone spare the atmosphere from the equivalent of nearly all auto emissions in America."
