  •  In '78 you had Big Oil and Big Nuclear against you (1+ / 0-)

    Big Oil liked the status quo (and we were just past Peak Oil in the US, but not the Middle East) and Big Nuclear helped us fight the Godless Commies™, and couldn't be troubled to make safe(r) designs.

    Big Fusion was (and still is) 25 years away.

    Big Wind was a joke (although there was lots of it in the House of Representatives) and Big Solar was installed on the roof of the White House, only to be removed by Big Reagan.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
