LA Times pans McCain’s energy plan

Los Angeles Times editorial:

McCain’s energy plan misleads the public and ignores the risks of nuclear energy…. McCain, whose plan to boost nuclear power is an insult to voters’ intelligence…. Before gas prices started soaring and McCain emerged as the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, his ideas on energy sounded very much like Obama’s, focusing on renewable power, carbon controls and efficiency. Campaign consultants doubtless deemed that too crunchy-granola for the GOP base, so he has taken to tossing it red meat by talking up nuclear power and increased offshore oil drilling. But misleading the public about nuclear energy will not serve the country, or his campaign, well.
