I’ve long maintained that you can be a true environmentalist only if you are pro-nuclear. Nuclear fission is the only real, long-term, currently-available solution to our energy needs.
Despite breathless, irrational hysterial to the conrary, nuclear is safer and more plentiful than other sources, pollutes less than all others, and would be cheaper if not demonized. But so-called environmental activists, at best, are silent on the nuclear issue.
It’s been clear for some time that we WILL eventually go nuclear. Either that, or we will die. And since I believe the survival instinct can outweigh even whatever stupid gene makes people socialistic, we will eventually someday have to revv up nuclear fission plants once again. Now, finally, some green has sense, and also admits this.12:33 am on May 24, 2004 Email Stephan Kinsella
