Nuclear Power: Salvation or Disaster?
I just stumbled across the very interesting Wilson Quarterly from the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars, and I have really enjoyed reading the debate in last Autumn's issue about nuclear power. Max Schulz says that Nuclear is the Future, while Brice Smith and Arjun Makhijani argue that Nuclear Is Not the Way. Both sides make excellent points, but since I happen to also believe that we are nearing Peak Oil, something that neither side considers in their arguments, I think expanding nuclear power may be worth the risks.
Oh, and I saw a great quote on The Oil Drum when I was retrieving the Peak Oil link:
“Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.”—H. G. Wells, 1904
