    Not all backers of nuclear power are industry shills. Stewart Brand (of the Whole Earth Catalog fame) has publicly and strongly supported nuclear power. As he explains, it is not nuclear vs. solar, it’s nuclear as a replacement for coal. And while I think that solar photovoltaic energy is cool, earthy, etc., the fact is it is still more expensive than almost any other way to generate power. Plus, the sun always goes down every night. We need something for baseline power.

    At lot of the anti-nuclear hoopla strikes me as Ludditism or wishing that the technology would somehow go away. Unlikely to happen.
