I'll never understand the green objection to nuclear power. I mean, I undestand it (nuclear waste disposal, issues in the mining industries) but it seems impractically idealistic. Either global warming is an urgent enough problem that we should be encouraging the development of nuclear power as a stopgap measure, or it isn't.

Basically, the alternative is to tell every citizen that we should just accept having to switch to an energy use model that would be unthinkable a few years ago. To switch to models that have not been tested long-term and may not be ready to provide for our energy needs on large scale. Nuclear power is a realistic goal.

Don't let the best be the enemy of the good.
