Actually, Nuclear is the only truly 'renewable' energy we have besides burning wood, but Carter saw to it that we don't take advantage of that. Wind and solar are just 'plentiful' unless you want to say 'unreliable' and 'inconsistent' as well.

Come to think of it coal, oil, and gas are also renewable but the time scale is a little inconvenient. :)

I guess the real irony is that it was Carter.

Whilst regarding things ironic - all of the listed jobs in β€œ renewables β€œ are posted by the, at least at some point in time, largest holder of nuclear plants in the country. Sad but true.

Actually Ford put the moratorium on recycling fuel, Carter just made it permanent.

I am flattered... I just hope I don't get quite as cynical as he did.

Actually Ford put the moratorium on recycling fuel, Carter just made it permanent.

1974 - Ford - reprocessing and recycling...should not proceed

1977 - Carter - will defer indefinitely

1981 - Reagan - lifting the indefinite ban

1992 - GHW Bush - disapproved LIPA / Cogema to reprocess the slightly irradiated initial core from the Shoreham reactor, halted weapons reprocessing, announced the permanent closure of the PUREX reprocessing plant

1993 - Clinton - policy statement on reprocessing: β€œthe United States does not encourage the civil use of plutonium and, accordingly, does not itself engage in plutonium reprocessing for either nuclear power or nuclear explosive purposes. The United States, however, will maintain its existing commitments regarding the use of reprocessing for civil nuclear programs in Western Europe and Japan.”

1995 - Clinton - On November 29, 1995, a new nuclear cooperation agreement with EURATOM was submitted to Congress, some Members believed it did not meet the requirement of prior consent for reprocessing. The
agreement entered into effect in 1996 without a vote

2001 -  GWBush - National Energy Policy included the recommendation: the United States should consider technologies to develop reprocessing and fuel treatment technologies
