This is true, except that you're forgetting all the losses... and not just transmission line, but all the power transformers and every time you step it up/down and of course there's always faulty lines and other components. You can't guarantee it's cleaner in all parts of the world (or even the USA.) Thanks. And yes, nuclear is the way to go. Heck, it works for France right? Most people think of meltdown as an h-bomb going off, and that's bs. Americans know how to build nuclear plants right. Nobody was killed at Three Mile Island, and even after the accidents there were only trace amounts of radiation. The article in the Wii is Sh*t thread is about a dev complaining the Wii is too wimpy to handle today's games. I would call this a measure of "power." Most cars are said to be "powerful" if they can come up to speed quickly, and that was the basis of my point. Yes a small wimpy car like a Honda S2000 can be a blast to drive, too. Just like the Wii can be fun to play.
