During a recent visit to Denver, economics professor David Robinson had an interesting conversation with his cab driver:
He told me he's starting a new political party called the "practical environmentalist party." It might have been hot air -- there are lots of smart, strange people trying to solve the world's problems who don't end up doing much, but I asked him what his program would be. And he said "Nuclear power. If we don't switch to nuclear power soon we're cooked."Looks like the message is getting out.
That's when I started to believe that the environmental movement will be supporting nuclear power soon.
