One thing that concerns me is the schools that are favoring renewable and as Rod Adams points out natural gas at Stanford. UCLA and some other major universities don't even have nuclear energy as a field of study. That indicates that private funding is manipulating the potential workforce. Of course the governments action affect the outcome by allowing the industry to stagnate. I look at the ironies. Germany offers free education to their citizens yet they are antinuclear.

We need to help usher in the era of 4th generation nuclear. We need to fast track it. The cliff is here. We're about to fall off.
