    A floating nuclear power plant called the Akademik Lomonosov

    Next month, a floating nuclear power plant called the Akademik Lomonosov will be towed via the Northern Sea Route to its final destination in the Far East, after almost two decades in construction.

    It's part of Russia's ambition to bring electric power to a mineral-rich region. The 144-meter (472 feet) long platform painted in the colors of the Russian flag is going to float next to a small Arctic port town of Pevek, some 4,000 miles away from Moscow. It will supply electricity to settlements and companies extracting hydrocarbons and precious stones in the Chukotka region.

    Good idea.

    The usual suspects will complain.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I am dying to hear the Global Warming crowd complain about this. You want to decrease emissons? Go nuclear! It is the way of the future.

    No, because nuclear power is insanely expensive. Renewable energy sources are far cheaper.

    Remember conservatives, there's still no free lunch, no matter how hard you wish for one. We liberals, being realists, understand that money matters.

    If you disagree, you should go invest in nuclear power. Or perhaps beg for massive government subsidies for nuclear power, which is the only way it survives in other countries.
