Another College Student for Nuclear Energy

University of Wisconsin student Nathan Braun watched last week's "No Nukes" video and came away less than impressed:

While it is admirable to see celebrities and potential role models passionate about a cause, these statements demonstrate what’s wrong with anti-nuclear sentiment in America. They could be described as misinformed at best, fear-mongering at worst. Nuclear power is not perfect, but under the right circumstances it can be not only clean and safe, but also practical — the United States already gets 20 percent of its electricity from nuclear power; France gets 80 percent, mostly because political opposition isn’t as strong.
Be sure to read the rest, as they say, right now.
