Building more solar plants and developing a nuclear-power industry is part of a broader government plan to diversify away from crude sales as the main source of income.

Goes to show that Saudi leadership is thinking beyond oil. Too bad the Atlanta Falcons weren't as forward thinking - then maybe they would have kicked the Patriots' butts in the Super Bowl. ;)

Don't like the part of developing nuclear power-plants,regarding the Pats I think "deflate.gate" says it all.

Three mile Island, Chernobyl, Fukushima, what will it take to get the politicians to realize that nuclear power is a death sentence?

Had nothing to do with how the Pats played at the Superbowl pulling themselves together and making this historical ending.

I wasn't happy with the nuclear part of it either......not sure how that still ties in for many as clean or cheap.

As long as our politicians continue to be "tools" of the 1% the Corporate they'll never realize it, they see only green before their eyes, and it comes in the form of currency not trees and grasslands.

❤️Noted...There is big debate here in my home State of Victoria about what to do when they close the coal powered station in April. South Australia has green energy propped up by Victoria's coal fired energy. The south Australians have had black outs in the heat of summer which is deplorable in a modern land. The West Australians have decided they don't want black outs and have vowed to keep their status quo of coal fired power going. Their is talk of clean coal fired stations but apparently this is very expensive but if China can do it why can't we? How ever governments don't always act sensibly and probably won't until someone dies of heat related illness due to no power for their oxygen system. We have enough coal for another couple of centuries but it needs to be cleaned up and used in new modern clean power stations. I never understand how governments can spend obscene amounts of money on their own sorry butts but nothing on the infrastructure of the land. Thanking you kindly❤️
