If you look at the long term expected huge energy demand for China and India alone, you can only come to one conclusion. They will need massive clean nuclear power. They know it and they are willing to do something about it "NOW".
Going deeper and deeper for oil is not cheap. No, it is getting incredible expensive. I remember the times when my family would drill an oil well in Montana for 80 000 Dollars. Make this a several millions now. Several hundred millions coming up. And in the Golf ?? Make this several Billions. About as much as it costs to build a nuclear power plant and get clean energy.
