SEARCH BLOG: NUCLEAR POWER
Over two years ago, I wrote the the French were correct about nuclear power.
Here's a segment from 60 Minutes.
I guess if 60 Minutes agrees, it must be true. Well, maybe this time.
It's really logic 101.
What is really ironic is the very environmentalists who fought nuclear power are the same ones being alarmists about CO2 and, as a result, are forcing another look at nuclear power. I don't have a problem with idealism... except too many idealists have no clue about the unintended consequences of their positions. In this case, it may be a good thing that rectifies the problem they caused 30 years ago.
There are some other interesting things that might show up in 10 or 20 years... like Thorium reactors. Go ahead and search the blog about nuclear power.
Just one other thought. The Bush administration has not supported the idea of anthropogenic CO2 based global warming until very recently, but has generally supported the idea of energy independence... including nuclear power plants. Could it be that President Bush has managed to get his way by turning the eco-alarmists' messages against them???..
