The US imports crude, refines and exports gasoline and other products.

Saudi claims they "are interested in nuclear power so they can export more oil".

Sure.

When saudi days they want nuclear for clean energy only this is all I can think of.

If we had developed molten thorium reactors we could sell the that tech. Which does not involve enrichment of uranium and any left over plutonium produced by the thorium fuel cycle is useless for nuclear weapons.

Sounds like we don't need their oil, but the money is nice.

While harder, thorium can be used to make an atomic weapon.

The thorium fuel cycle involves breeding uranium-233. A partly U-233 bomb was made and exploded in 1955 and a completely U-233 bomb was exploded in 1998. Thorium can also be used as the blanket of a hydrogen bomb.

MET blast of the Teapot test series. (Actually a mixed PU-U-233 bomb).

As has India, with Shakti V, said to be completely U-233.

And has Russia, in their first hydrogen bomb.

Is that an arithmetic error by the bill writer ? One extra zero perhaps ?

Nope Michigan is adding $450 a year to their EV registrations

It has nothing to do with roads, many states are attacking EV ownership

If they start doing that here I'm selling the leaf and getting the most hybrid I can get with out paying some stupid tax like that.
Hopefully I would be allowed to have a plug in hybrid.
Theft by state to the tune of $450 wipes out a good portion of my EV savings over gasoline.
If I had to pay that it may not even really be worth it to deal with the limitations of a cheap little EV like the leaf.
