I received several comments from people who had perused yesterday’s Wall Street Journal. Apparently they saw the abbreviated paper version of the article titled Reading Up on Nuclear Energy. It was nice to hear from so many people and kind of nice to see my name in print. ( I am the guilty owner of a bit of vanity: sometimes it’s not well hidden.)
In the same special section of the Journal there was another article that included diagnosis and prescriptions on our oil addiction from a number of people. The author obviously has a sense of irony, there was an amusing juxtaposition of Amory Lovins saying “Efficiency is one of the highest-return and lowest-risk investments in the entire economy, no matter how low energy prices might go.” followed by Myron Ebell saying “Congress and state legislatures should repeal all energy-efficiency mandates and subsidies.”
There are plenty of points of view when it comes to energy sources and uses.
