Gamal Mubarak, son of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, urged his father's party on Tuesday to consider a proposal to develop nuclear energy, taking a controversial stance as he seeks to position himself regionally as a serious politician. "We will continue using our natural energy resources, but we should conserve these resources for our future generations," Mubarak told party members gathered in Cairo. "The whole world is looking at alternative energy, so should Egypt - including nuclear," he said.
