Here is something I wish would be done in the United States:
South Korea may build more than nine new nuclear power reactors by 2030, raising the ratio of nuclear power use to 55 percent from the current 37 percent, the Yonhap news agency reported on Sunday.
The plan comes as part of the government’s effort to cope with skyrocketing oil prices and other costs of producing energy, Yonhap cited the Ministry of Knowledge and Economy as saying.
South Korea has 20 commercial nuclear power generators in operation, and eight under construction to be completed by 2016. [Inquier.net]
What I like about the Korean decision to build additional nuclear power plants is that they are doing it response to global oil prices instead of global warming religion fears. You would think with both high oil prices and global warming religion fears in the US, we would be building nuclear power plants but ironically the same global warming religionists are blocking the building of new reactors in the US.
