Does it Make Sense to Oppose Nuclear Power?

That's the question that one progressive activist at The Irregular Times is asking:

Considering the current climate crisis, it seems clear to me that now is not a good time for shutting down the nuclear power industry. It seems to me that effort needs to be focused on reducing the role of fossil fuels and other carbon emitting sources of energy.
Wow, that's not the sort of conclusion I'd expect out of a blog like that one -- but as we've seen before, these are interesting times.

Our new friend at The Irregular Times says he's keeping an open mind on the issue, so stop by and invite him to join a conversation with us. As always, please be polite.

Does any one really think that going Nuclear will change greenhouse gas?
There are so many other things that contribute to it, though, arn't there?
Cars, TV, microwaves...if we cut down on these things more maybe there won't be a huge debate of what people want.
Nuclear uses more water...right?
so I supose that we can fix the drought..by all things possible...maybe using sea water to put in fire trucks.
or we could fix the greenhouse problems...
