    (thought that didn't work out well for Japan), but it's true that the cost of new construction and the fact that industry tends to default on loans for such make building lots of new nuclear power plants unlikely. I remember once Lamar Alexander saying he wanted 100 new nuclear plants built in the next ten years (was a couple of years ago). I remember muttering to myself, "Where's the money going to come from, Senator?"

    Can you imagine what it would take to build 10 new plants every year?

    I don't know, I guess if you thought that was your only ticket out of catastrophic climate change, you might do it, but our government never would. Government spending, you know, is bad. We can't even get money for a basic jobs program.

    if necessary for years; if necessary, alone
