green says, go nuclear

Although a liberal, I've always been pro-nuclear power, even before I'd ever heard of global climate change or excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Now Greens like Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore are becoming convinced.

Yes, nuclear power is imperfect. Yes, an accident could kill thousands. But as Moore points out, Three Mile Island showed how a well-designed plant can keep an accident from becoming a catastrophe -- nothing leaked. And a medium-case global climate change scenario would be worse for the planet than even a Chernobyl-sized accident.

Again, I don't know if we can stop climate change. But we should at least try. Nuclear power needs to be a major component of such an effort.

FYI: Stewart Brand, the founder of "The Whole Earth Catalog" mentioned in Mr. Moore's article, has also endorsed my thriller novel of nuclear power as a way for the lay person to learn the good and the bad of this energy source.

"Rad Decision" is available online at no cost to readers at RadDecision.blogspot.com - - and they seem to like it, judging from the reviews they're leaving at the homepage. There's nothing else like it out there.

"Very nice, good pace. The tech was good but not overwhelming." - a reader.

"I started reading Rad Decision because of my interest in nuclear power -- then found I could not put it down! -- another reader.
