A Nuclear Energy Question We'd Like to See Asked in the Presidential Debates

Over at AOL Energy, Margaret Ryan spent some time talking to a variety of policy analysts to devise some questions about energy policy that reporters ought to ask during October's Presidential debates.

As you might expect, this one caught our attention:
What's the future role of nuclear power? Can the nation have a serious climate policy without a serious nuclear one, including finally confronting the issue of nuclear waste? How should the US deal with nuclear waste? Would the candidate endorse continued research and development work in small modular nuclear reactors?
Here's hoping that question gets asked. For more information on the debates, click here for more from Politico.
