    is the fact that shoddy workmanship takes all forms, including--clearly, demonstrably--in the nuclear power industry.

    You can try spinning this nine ways from Sunday, and it'll be just as laughable on the tenth time, too. Until the human beings that build these things are infallible, your defense of it is the only glaring FAIL that I see.

      every day or...decade from nuclear? Or those plants all melting down? In fact, "shoddy workmanship" isn't even what lead to the Fukushima meltdown. I know...just say 'anything' but that nuclear provides most of the worlds non-carbon/GHG emissions and can be used to shut down gas and coal plants. it doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to work, and it does, safely. If all you have is a collapsed cooling tower and you want to sacrafice the planet for fear there may be TWO collapsed cooling towers, then you don't really care.

      •  How much longer (0+ / 0-)

        do you intend to sidestep the point being made here about "workmanship".

        Because you can put out all the nuke-industry talking points you want--none of it addresses that point. None of it.
