Voter apathy is ungodly high simply because we've been conditioned to believe that anybody not in one of the two parties isn't worth electing. When there is so little difference between D and R who can blame people for simply letting themselves get railroaded.

Uh, me? The people have the power to vote in whoever they want. The fact that they choose not to use it is their own fault.

This is just FUD. As GP pointed out, the resources are available. We just don't have our backs against the wall yet. When that happens, nuclear will be unavoidable. Not to mention some of the promising advances in renewable energy that are happening right now.

People have been saying that the sky is falling since at least the time of Christ. No, actually, it's not.
