Europe oil/gas wants to bring nuclear power to Mid East

Two of Europe’s biggest oil and gas companies, Total and Eni, each plan to bring nuclear power to countries in the Middle East. (link)

It should be U.S. companies leading the way, in that technology. After the 1970s energy crisis, France invested heavily in nuclear power and technology, and is seeing clear benefits today.

It's sad that the United States is not a serious contender in the nuclear power arena, at a time when we need plentiful, clean, safe energy.
