On Saturday, January 13, 2006, Nathan Nadir of the Daily Koz posted a comment titled A Black Mark Against Barack Obama: Coal Liquefaction.
The comment thread associated with Nadir’s observation has included some very interesting discussions about the comparisons between burning coal and using fission power. As you might imagine, I have made a couple of contributions to the debate, but my comments pale in comparison to the ones that Nathan himself has posted. He is a very bright guy who has some excellent ideas about how to put nuclear fission left over materials to better use. I highly encourage a visit. Notice just how “kindly” Nathan treats those who he feels are simply repeating words from reflexively anti-nuclear groups.
