if not nuclear power then what? I haven't heard about this guy from Italy that his cold fusion worked so we will be using resources like coal... which will dissapear probably by the beginning of the next century. Wind and solar power, OK, but not everywhere... so, please enlighten me what my grandkids will have to run their xboxes, dishwashers and ipads...

Dammit! I thought such things are over and such debates were finished couple of hundreds years ago! It is like how many devils will fit on the needle tip... gimme a break.
