In the Lightgiver's desire to be all things to all people, Barry is all over the place with, among other things, his so-called "energy policy"
First, according to USA Today, he's for more Nuclear Power.
But when he is pandering to his Watermelon base:
In October of last year, when Obama was going all out to pander to his party's anti-nuclear base, Obama made his position clear: “I am not a nuclear energy proponent.”
So Obama is against Yucca Mountain (naturally, he also voted to fund it) but demands a solution to the storage problem. He wants to make certain that the plants are safe but his own state has more plants than any other and no history of accidents. And Obama wants to spend $150 billion on developing new sources of renewable energy, but he doesn't want to provide a single dollar to a proven, safe, reliable, and emissions free technology.
So Barak Obama is against safe, proven and green technology that can meet America's energy needs rapidly, but is more than willing to spend money pie in the sky technologies that won't be ready for at least ten years.
