So why is nuclear power not banned again?  I remember hearing lobbyists that were pushing for nuclear power talk about how it's safe, clean and efficient.  So how is a power source that produces radioactive waste that last thousands of years clean and safe?  Ask the people around Chernobyl or 3 Mile Island how safe they think it is.  Why we are not focusing on Wind, Water and Solar power more defies logic.  Then again, politics has been defying logic lately.

Because r&d for wind, water and solar power during the cold war didn't have the same high potential to lead to military applications.  See also: space program.

This is one of the latest developments in wind technology.  This company came out with a new helix design for a wind turbine which can absorb wind from any direction even when wind speed is low.  Beats the hell out of bathing in radiation.

Exactly. Military-Industrial reasons.
