Whatever It Takes: Obama Sidesteps Law to Halt Domestic Energy Production. Twice.
Pajamas Media ^ | 7/14/10 | by Clarice Feldman

The administration has shown no deference to the rule of law while trying to close Yucca Mountain and halt deepwater drilling.

It is disturbing, to say the least, how little deference the president and the administration give to the strictures of the Constitution and existing law. Whatever suits Obama’s partisan political interests takes precedence, regardless of the cost to us. However, it is heartening that judges are increasingly unwilling to let this rampage continue.

The most recent example involves the planned nuclear-waste repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada.

Almost everyone acknowledges that nuclear power is clean and safe, even though there has been a decades-long campaign against it by ill-informed advocacy groups. The remaining concern about nuclear energy in this country, for some decades, has been how to dispose of the spent fuel created in the electrical generation process. In Europe, they have largely dealt with this problem by reprocessing that fuel and reusing it to create more energy. In this country, that option was discarded years ago in favor of long-term geological storage. Decades of expensive studies zeroed in on Yucca Mountain as the best site for such storage.

Funny how the American left admires the European politics, socialism, nationalized healthcare, global warming crapola, “relaxed” lifestyle, $8 per liter gasoline...

but rejects their nuclear energy policies and practices of reprocessing spent fuel

(oh no, we might produce “plutonium” as a byproduct and producing “plutonium” is eeevil ... unless you are French)

This is a deliberate sabotage of our economy. How much worse must it get before people do something?
