Three Facts about Nuclear Energy
The uranium and thorium in the top four microns of the Earth's crust “would satisfy the whole world's needs for a year.”
Each uranium or thorium atom will emit 40 MeV of radiation by the time it decays to lead. If it's fissioned, the fission products will emit half of that.
The opposition is already up and running so we have arguments to refute them. (Some people consider this to be a bug.) Once solar power starts producing the emissions the activist class is most afraid of (profits), they'll come up with a new set of objections to solar and it will take decades for us to refute them.
