California should revive nuclear energy option

Christine Todd Whitman The Sacramento Bee August 3, 2009 Given the fiscal challenges facing California, there will be great temptation to put on hold any major new projects. It's important to remember, however, that postponing spending commitments doesn't mean they disappear; rather, costs rise even higher later while the needs remain. [...]
