Gilmore advocates shifting away from oil

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore suggested Tuesday at the GOP presidential debate the United States turn towards nuclear power and other alternative energy sources.

"We're going to have to in fact look to all sources: ethanol, biomass, coal, clean coal, the opportunities for natural gas, and nuclear power."

"Nuclear power will help this whole issue of global warming," Gilmore added.

Gilmore was responding to a question posed by CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer, who pressed the candidates on whether oil executive profits were too high.

    Nuclear power will help with global warming, that's rich! If the Republicans remain in charge, I have no doubt global warming will get all the help they can give it.

    Ron Paul is the only man answering the questions and not selling used cars soaked in blood, and corporate lobbyist approved yammering. Rudy is the biggest of the frauds. Nice head make-up tough guy. Go Ron Paul, the only hope to beat Clinton.
