I had a nice lunch time discussion today regarding some of the needs for the State of Vermont. One item that came up was the need for reliable cheap power and that it was agreed that Thorium nuclear power plants (as I mentioned in my Shadow State of the Union speech) are a spot on solution for the state of Vermont.
One of these plants could be built in Newport and one of them could be be built where the existing Vermont Yankee plant is.
Below is a link to a great graphic detailing why these nuclear plants can be the future of America's energy needs.
