Senate hearing kicks off on climate change bill

Normally I wouldn't link to MSNBC which has been exposing its liberal bias lately, but

Senate hearing kicks off climate bill - Capitol Hill- msnbc.com

I'm hoping this bill dies before it reaches the Senate.

The supposed "creation of green jobs" is just a big fraud. This bill would cost way more jobs than it would create. The local pulp and paper mill would most definitely go out of business, costing around 10,000 jobs.


I like the idea of building 100 nuclear power plants. Nuclear energy is extremely safe, despite what the environuts say, there hasn't been an accident since Chernobyl which was 25 years ago. Nuclear power is our best bet for a positive future in energy production. And hey, it would create jobs, not destroy them!

I can't believe that hussein carried Virginia. This crap and trade will crush the coal industry and the voters (union) were too dense to see it.

Yea, reactors are the way to go, unless it's natural gas.

My dad would lose his job, and I would probably too, since I'm gonna start working there in June, hopefully.

What division or machine do you work on?



Hanford reactors need to be started back up. 3 reactors there would easily provide all the electricity needs for the inland Northwest.
Worth noting about nuclear energy, is when handled safely, you will never have an accident. If you want proof, just look at France.

I met a British couple while I was camping once that moved to the US to do that.
Why anyone would want to move to the Tri-Cities is beyond me.
My dad lived there for 6 months and hated it.


Apparently one reactor at Hanford is on standby.
Time to start that baby back up.
