Energy Policy

There are two candidates and they are opposites on so many levels.

Energy is no exception.

Mr. Obama's primary solution is conservation and secondarily emphasizing the development of alternative energy sources. Obama's perspective does not view the increasing cost of gasoline as necessarily a bad thing since higher prices should propel the search for alternatives.

Mr. McCain's primary solution is production including existing fuels as well as the development of alternatives. Foremost in McCain's plan is the construction of 45 nuclear reactors by 2030. We have 104 now which produce some 19% of our electricity.

Pretty simple dichotomy.
