Great Discussion about Nuclear Energy Over at NewTalk

What's NewTalk? Well, according to their About page:

NewTalk presents focused discussions by experts on the most important domestic topics shaping American society today. We bring together experts in theory, policy and practice—from academics and lawmakers to admired practitioners—to share their diverse perspectives on pressing domestic issues.
Two days ago they asked the question: Is Nuclear Power Essential to Addressing Climate Change and Energy Independence? Eleven experts from both sides (pro and con) have so far chimed in with their thoughts. Some of the experts include Gwyneth Cravens, author of Power to Save the World: The Truth About Nuclear Energy; Doug Chapin, MPR Associates, Inc.; and Chris Crane, VP at Exelon Corp.

The discussion is only set to last until 5 PM today so get your comments in if you have any to make.

Hat tip to Eric McErlain for the link to the discussion.

Parts of the "NewTalk" conversation reminded me of the Mat Hatter's tea party in Alice in Wonderland. The anti-nulear crowd failed to fulfill the elementary requirements of conversation, by not listening. The anti-nuclear spokes-persons reject the possibility that new information might alter or even nuance their views, and thus only voice their 30 year old openions, unconstrained by recent more recent information.

Hence the conversation is no conversation
