The only thing heating up more than the Japanese Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant is the propaganda war here in the US over whether we should use nuclear power to help solve our energy needs. I don’t have the answer, but I do know that the arguments being made by both sides are unlikely to help us come to a rational decision about this.
I’ll also say that I don’t have anything against nuclear power. I think that any problems with it can be solved. But what really scares me is the nuclear power industry.
