Spike, I wrote what I wrote about my options, because all other factors
being equal, I would choose nukes and solar first. On the grounds they are
cleaner, mostly. And longer lasting. And not so capricious. But if there
is no other way, I may have coal plant in my basement and turbine stuffed
on my head. Anything like this and some more, may be acceptable if I don't
have to give up computing.
