That would actually be a great opportunity for nuclear, however I have a feeling that these guys would hate nuclear even more than coal (I know it's stereotyping, but their type usually does and you'd be hard pressed to argue otherwise.)
Careful with your insensitive clod stereotyping, I am a pro-nuclear green wanker and proud of it. I had to cut off my ties to Greenpeace when they wouldn't shut up about the damn nuke power plants being eeeeevil.
Living in Florida, it isn't all that hard. Coal stacks put yellow-brown streaks in an otherwise blue sky - clear evidence of literally tons of sulfur and other nasties being injected into our environment after a train ride down from under the mountains of Appalachia.
The nuke plants, on the other hand, hum quietly and cleanly, and get all excited when the tiniest bit of detectable radiation leaks outside the controlled containment area. This is Florida, we're all going to die of skin cancer, and it's not coming from the local power plants.
