About the "EPA cracking down on coal power" it's overstated. From what I've read it's affecting plants that were created 30+ years ago. Ones that are inefficient.[Source]

(Regarding offshore drilling, keystone pipeline, and drilling on public lands I have no opinion on. They seem like rather complex subjects). Though Obama has been pretty strict about the use of public lands for mining. (Mining around the Grand Canyon for instance).
I agree, big fan of nuclear power. I read something a while ago about thorium? I think that's right but it was a competing technology with uranium and we chose uranium because we could use it to develop weapons (in BOOMING GOD VOICE) OF MASS DESTRUCTION! hehe
