NAM Releases Energy Security Report

Our friends over at the National Association of Manufacturers today released Energy Security for American Competitiveness, a comprehensive report on diversifying the nation's energy mix:

"Our economy and way of life are dependent on reliable and affordable energy," said NAM President John Engler. "We cannot rely on the future to take care of itself - we must be proactive and we must be vigilant in creating an energy policy to keep America strong and working.

"Many dream of energy security, but the NAM's strategy lays a solid foundation to make that dream a reality," Engler said. "Nothing short of a robust, aggressive, and comprehensive energy strategy will adequately address our energy security needs."
Click here for a copy of the report. Here's what it has to say about nuclear energy:
“Nuclear: Since this is the second-largest source of electricity in the United States, we need to make sure it’s available in the future. To grow nuclear power, we need interim storage facilities, provisions that prevent delays in approving new nuclear plants and more funding for new university based nuclear physics programs.”
Great stuff. Be sure to check it out.
