A Brief Note on How I Became a Pro-Nuclear Fanatic
I went from someone who was mildly pro-nuke to someone who is fervently pro-nuke as a result of the reactions to an article on solar-power satellites in the CoEvolution Quarterly. Some of the commenters cited the supposed failure of nuclear energy as a reason to oppose SPS as well. In other words, if we let them get away with suppressing nukes for no good reason they'll move on to other technologies.
They have already started that.
