I cant seam to figure out why in the world we cant re organize production of power. In a perfect world all production of energy would/could be nuclear, and ethanol/hydrogen would be perfectly viable options. Regional nuclear powered hydrogen production facilities would/could/should? be the future.

I had a proffesor in college who was anti nuclear all the way, then she visited a few other countries powered by newer nuclear plants, and came home a believer. They had better plans for waste disposal than the US, and an updated grid to cut down on line loss. Or even better lets produce hyrogen, and de centralize electrical power, w/hydrogen powered fuel cells running our homes.

ohh noes hydrogen in the gas pipes
