Howard Cork Hayden, Emeritus Physics Professor, University of Connecticut: As a long-time observer of the energy scene, I remind everybody that the war on nuclear is only part of the war on energy being waged by both the malicious and the ignorant. All energy saves lives, even from unreliable piddle-power sources like firewood (500 W/acre, 1200 W/ha year-round average), wind (5 kW/acre, 12 kW/ha year-round average), and solar (>>>$1 million/kWh at midnight). Please don’t get sucked in by the implication that fossil fuels are bad. You’d be joining the battle against energy.

Beautiful Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Station in California. Fossil fuels enabled the deveolment of modern civilization both with energy for electricity, transportation, industry, mega-cites and with hundreds of thousands of amazing, valuable by-products. Nuclear power has much greater energy density. Therefore, it is even better for the environment. Beautiful Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Station in California.
