President Bush's Energy Plan

If sunbeams were weapons of war, we would have had solar energy long ago.
George Porter, chemist

President Bush presented a plan on Wednesday to offer federal risk insurance to companies that build nuclear power plants and to encourage the construction of oil refineries on closed military bases in the United States, according to the New York Times.

What about risk insurance for the people that live around these areas? Will we protect the nuclear power plants any better than we do our ports and current nuclear sites?
