Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn) unveiled a blueprint that calls for the use of nuclear energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The plan calls for 100 nuclear plants to be built in the next 20 years. Alexander believes the 20 year targets for the United States should be to receive 40 percent of its power from nuclear power generation, 10 percent from renewable energy, 10 percent from hydroelectric and 5 percent from natural gas. The blueprint concludes by saying, “We led the world in pioneering nuclear technology in the 20th century. We should be leading the world in taking advantage of it in the 21st.” The Senator also commented on the recently passed Waxman-Markey legislation in the House, saying, “I would strenuously argue against adding a nuclear title to the Waxman-Markey bill. It's unfixable."
