Howard Cork Hayden, Emeritus Physics Professor, University of Connecticut: There is no such thing as safe energy. To ask for such is to ask for gasoline that doesn't burn. Nuclear is the safest generation scheme for electricity, but one should always bear in mind that energy saves far more lives than it costs, no matter what the source. Do not pollute a strong pro-nuclear case with weak arguments ("climate change"). If the weather turns cold for a year or two, the anti-nukes will push the argument that you pro-nukes lied to them about global warming to inflict nuclear power on an unwary public.

Planet Earth is a large place with vast oceans and lots of people, thanks due to fossil fuels. Some people are making alarming claims demanding stopping use of fossil fuels. That would be terrible for humanity and the environment. Planet Earth is a large place with vast oceans and lots of people, thanks due to fossil fuels.
