Yes we certainly need all hands on deck for this problem. The energy crisis facing this country is now firmly on our collective front door.

I don't blame the nimbys at all. Our government totally blew off the problem many years ago when nuclear waste was first being generated. In my state the Federal Dept of Energy and the Washington State Dept of Ecology are dealing with a massive clean up at the Hanford nuclear reservation where plutonium for the first A bomb was made. We have a large amount of ground water that was contaminated that is now leaking into the Columbia river. It looks like the clean up costs for this alone will exceed 50 billion dollars and we still have to spend much more after that for the other problems remaining there. I'm not against nukes, just the long term "real" costs of operating and disposing of them.

Solar power doesn't have any of those problems.
