Energy production may be one of the greatest problems we face today. Energy and power are so intertwined with our lives many people can’t even imagine a world without them. I know it is difficult to feel emotional attachment problems as mathematical and political as energy production but I believe moving forward requires people to become so. One thing that most people should and normally do feel very strong about is this country. How far can we proceed if we are dependent on foreign oil. History tells us not very far. We have a solution though right in front of us and that is nuclear power. It is time to implement nuclear power as a dominate source of energy in the U.S. and I believe that can start by reintroducing nuclear power to Colorado.
