Interesting coincidence

Remember when, a few days ago, I highlighted here what conservative author and political strategist Cliff May wrote about conservatives and energy policy? May wrote, for example:

"Logic and morality — even more than self-interest — should prompt us to pursue energy abundance and diversity, to use fast-advancing technology to derive power not just from petroleum products but also from the wind and sun, clean coal, and nuclear reactors."

And here's what John McCain said yesterday:

"The experience of nations across Europe and Asia has shown that nuclear energy is efficient. It is safe, it is proven, and it is essential to America's energy future," McCain said during his speech. "We will need to recover all the knowledge and skills that have been lost over three stagnant decades in a highly technical field."

Interesting. Keep listening to those conservative voices, Senator.
