David Walters, a member of the IBEW and the mind behind the new blog Left Atomics, is expanding his thoughts on why political progressives need to re-think their position on nuclear energy:

Wind, solar, both now and for the foreseeable future, are incapable of providing reliable and cheap power to the world.Feel free to stop by and continue the conversation.
