Energy efficiency stimulus

I generally agree with most of the steps suggested by this article, and buy in to the urgency of acting now, and aggressively. (I have problems with the emphasis on nuclear, given my concerns about waste storage and the cost effectiveness of it). Part of the problem has been that the Feds haven't fully funded the State weatherization programs in the recent past. This has to change, and more money should be made available. Energy conservation and efficiency improvements in peoples' homes make a lot of sense by stemming demand AND putting folks to work.
