First, we should be asking "What would create the most jobs"? Nuclear fusion of any kind is dangerous. I never heard of Coal Fired plants melting down. Another good energy source is wind . Building and maintaining windmills creates jobs. Solar is another good source. All nuclear fuel should be put back underground where it came from. In fact it should be banned worldwide. The ability to make "Dirty Bombs" would be eliminated. Thereby keeping it from terrorists.

Will Pro have to defend every line? It seems odd that you would create the bill and make someone else defend it. Why not just do a debate on whether the US government should invest money in Thorium Reactors?
