Obama May Supplement Wind and Solar Power with Nuclear Energy From Iran and North Korea

Washington, D.C.--With environmental groups opposing the expansion of cheap and efficient nuclear power plants, President Obama may include nuclear energy from Iran and North Korea in his U.S. energy program.

Because it is increasingly likely Iran will achieve a nuclear capability, and North Korea will develop missile technology capable of delivering nuclear material long-range, Administration sources said “we could see the results of that technology right here at home.”

Such nuclear technology would supplement current efforts to provide more wind and solar power, perhaps in heavily populated urban centers.

“By letting Iran’s and North Korea’s aggression go largely unchecked,” said one Administration official, “those countries may be more likely to share some of their nuclear energy with us.”
