More Info:

* About the opposition of nuclear power plants in Texas can be found at Nuke Free Texas.

* About nuclear energy as an energy alternative can be read from the Rocky Mountain Institute’s Nuclear Energy Library or their The Case Against Nuclear page.  Included is a pre-draft of Amory Lovins’ heavily researched paper concluding that nuclear electricity is more expensive (cost, carbon, reliability, security), not less expensive, than several of the other renewable “soft” energy (i.e., wind, solar, geothermal) solutions being discussed these days.
