Bush: Be more like France, China

W picked some unusual role models in his speech at a Maryland nuclear plant.

Today, there are 103 nuclear plants in America. They produce about 20 percent of the nation’s electricity without producing a single pound of air pollution or greenhouse gases…

Yet, even though there has been a growing consensus over time, America has not ordered a nuclear plant since the 1970s. By contrast, France has built 58 nuclear plants in the same period of time. By contrast, China now has eight nuclear plants in the works and plans to build at least 40 more over the next two decades.

His speech also touched on biodiesel, CAFTA, medical malpractice reform, and several other issues.
