    but I think my thoughts have been consistent.  I depend on facts, data and science.  I cannot condone hysteria or gut reactions to a crisis.  I have been anti-nuke since the 1970s and have represented clients who have worked in the industry and raised serious concerns about operations.

      I agreed to support a $250 million prototype, if we could not make it the central headline issue of our comments about conventional nuclear reactors.  

      Or, am I confused in my memory of our exchange last week.  

      Sorry, gchaucer2.  I wasn't trying to be snarky, sanctimonious, or a pain in the neck.  

      Just struggling to get ourselves focused on a high level push for the real, clean alternative energy generation of the future, most of which would be solar, wind, tidal, geothermal, efficiency improvements, and conservation.

      Plus, some smaller scale reseach into other kinds of advanced technologies, that might very well turn out to be important, but could also confuse average folks.  

      Let's keep on trucking.
