Obama: No Nukes?

Obama calls for new era of energy exploration

The President has been pushing for new sources of energy; touting the advantages of wind, solar and (even) clean coal.  Curiously, the cheapest source for electricity, that also meets the dubious no-CO2-emissions goal, has not been mentioned:   Nuclear power.

The Weekly Standard has an article by Halbert Fischel that walks us through the economics associated with the various options including nuclear power.  Given the President's choice of energy alternatives, one  has to wonder if his Administration has yet to make similar calculations.
