No, really.

Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz announced a multibillion-dollar loan guarantee Wednesday for building nuclear reactors in Georgia, underscoring the White House’s plan for an “all of the above” energy strategy.

The two reactors will be the first built in this country in nearly three decades.

President Obama “sees nuclear energy as a part of his carbon-free portfolio” that also includes renewable energy sources, Moniz said during a speech at the National Press Club in Washington. “We are working across the board to push the technology forward into the marketplace for all of our energy sources.”

Moniz said he would finalize the loans on Thursday during a trip to Georgia.

The announcement brought quick criticism from some environmentalists.

While it is comforting to see U.S. energy policy being dragged into the late 20th century, this is the kind of thing that makes me wonder what kind of back room awfulness may have gone on to bring this about. Yes, there has been some lip service and this was promised back in 2010 but we know where this administration’s heart is when it comes to renewable energy. Thus far, that hasn’t been anything proven and profitable.

For now, let’s hope this isn’t a passing fancy.

Yes, you are right. The folks that own this administration do not want nuclear power and this money is being thrown down the sewer because they will see that nuclear power will fail. Why do it?
My bet is that much of the money involved will go through the hands of personal friends (check: those HE played golf with over the past three years- note, these names will not be easy to get) and the employers/clients of dem members of Congress (and family members) and Congressional dem staffers (aand family members). Heck, even some "friendly" Republicans might get lucky.
Then, the companies involved will default and the federal guarantees will kick in.
