Fast-tracking several new nuke power plants projects wouldn’t hurt either.

Nuclear plants require a lot of government involvement in areas of insurance and loan guarantees. They are very expensive and take a long time to build. Fossil fuels are the most economical way to go for the foreseeable future.

I very much doubt that it's possible to "fast-track" a nuke plant.

There are so many legal roadblocks the enviros can erect and delaying tactics they can employ that a wholesale re-writing of the environmental laws and regulations would probably be required to make another nuclear plant even remotely feasible.

I'm not saying it shouldn't be done, though...

A few years ago, the ultra-left documentary maker Ken Burns released "The National Parks: America's Best Idea". Not surprisingly, it was featured on government-run PBS, the Propaganda Broadcasting Service. Unlike Burns' characterization, this land grab of territory by progressive Teddy Roosevelt was nothing but socialism. A good idea? A resounding NO!

Private enterprise serves as a far better steward than the federal government of this acreage. And with our need for domestic energy, what is now a socialized land mass would be much better served by drilling.

... also making some new refineries, and making the formulations the same across all 50 states.
