An Environmentalist Wants to Talk Nuclear Energy

After reading MSNBC's five-part hit job on the global nuclear industry, Michael at Groovy Green asked this of nuclear energy supporters:

I still have my doubts about any technology that creates such massive waste and could itself contribute to weapons or disaster. Advocates of the industry can go on for days about how great this or that is, but the end result is nothing surrounding the word ‘nuclear’ is 100% safe. Just like coal burning plants, it’s still a dirty technology. OK, Nuke pros/cons, let’s talk about this.
Please take him up on his offer. As always, be respectful.

Hello NEI, thanks for the discussions over at Groovy Green. I respect the opinions offered and enjoy the perspectives on this topic. As an environmentalist, I approach energy issues with great interest and an open mind. I hope to learn more from your comments and appreciate your time in sharing. Kind Regards, Michael

I found it sad that the main points of the MSNBC story are:

1)Money buys access in Washington.
2)Corporations support Congressmen that are sympathetic to their interests.
3)Congressmen support industries in their own district/state.
4)Dick Cheney is overly secretive.

Is there more to the MSNBC story or is that it?

We have a lousy system of government. It is just better than the others.
