"Drill, Ivan, Drill"...with nukes?

In a follow-up to Colbert, Igor sends along this awesome story:

...Russia is planning a fleet of floating and submersible nuclear reactors to provide power for drilling and exploration for oil and natural gas in Arctic areas that Moscow claims as its own.
No word on what Santa thinks about the plan, but enviornmentalists are opposed to the idea. "No one considers that the nukes might be considered a 'carbon offset' for the oil rigs."

Sorry Santa.
