The dependence for energy on something we dont produce is a vulnerability.
While I agree with you on nuclear, and wind (where economical), the largest source of electricity in the US is from coal, of which we have an abundance.
Yeah and we should make better use of it as well as the oil shale’s. Retrofitting MHD generator’s into older coal plants is one good idea, as well as coal liquefaction. Oil will rise in price eventually and make this economical.
