Looks fairly even to me over the last 37 years or so.



Absolutely. My point was we could replace all of our coal plants with nuclear today. Then as wind and solar technologies begin to become cheaper, safer and more reliable, we can gradually phase out nuclear.





Actually wind farms are responsible for the deaths of over 100 bald eagles annually in California alone and many other eagles around the world.

You would think that after the first few bald eagles got propelled out of the sky by a wind turbine that his buddies would suggest flying just a bit higher than normal in those areas?
