But being anti-nuclear because you don't think there is an adequate safety margin, or that all failure modes aren't being considered, or because you think nuclear power companies are cutting corners are matters of engineering. That's a lot more debatable than the science at this point.
I think we should remove the profit motive and give plants more funding to make sure they are engineered correctly. Then I'd feel better about them.
Like I said, we aren't going to do anything about global warming. Both sides claim that there isn't enough evidence. And there never will be.
