When Pro-Nuclear Readers Fight Back

Over at Gristmill, David Roberts is up to his nuclear energy-bashing best again, but this time, the readers of his blog aren't putting up with it:

Since Roberts is not antinuclear, it will no doubt be happy news to him that although no new power reactor has started up in 2007 in the USA*, its operating total has nonetheless increased from 103 to 104.


[Y]you recently posted an analysis of how to shut down nuclear power and fight climate change at the same time, and all the analysis included were % reductions/increases each year, except they weren't even exponential functions. A goal is not the same as a plan. What conceivable reason could you have to believe that there was useful content in this?
Be sure to stop by and add your two cents. As always, please be respectful.

David Roberts is simply dishonest. He faithfully parrots the 1970's anti-nuclear line, never noticing that it is now 2007. I think he is a coal company stooge pretending to be a Green.
