Global Warming Alarmism Can Fuel Nuclear Power, Allen Says
Alarmism over global warming, if properly channeled, can help spur innovation, sharpen U.S. competitiveness, and re-adjust energy policy in sensible ways, former Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) told Cybercast News Service in an interview.
Looking ahead, Allen envisions nanotechnology, advanced nuclear technology, clean coal, and natural gas incorporated into a new energy strategy that advances U.S. energy independence and allays environmental concerns.
Instead of adopting the regulatory-laden and expensive Kyoto Protocol to battle global warming, he said, the U.S. should better exploit its own resources at home while embracing new technologies.
