There is an energetic discussion going on at EnergyPulse associated with a rather provocative article titled Does Nuclear Power Really Make Sense?. As of a few minutes ago (3:20 am on May 2, 2006), there were 44 comments, many of them making excellent sense and using solid facts to support the positions stated. Of course, all of those were on the side of the people that disagreed with the article’s premise. (smile)
Actually, there were some interesting statements even by those that believe that nuclear fission power is not appropriate for new construction. Check out the discussion and contribute your two cents.
