    I support nuclear after having been actively opposed to it for 30 years because it's the largest source of carbon free energy there is, right NOW in fact. This is not 'jargon' it's facts. Deal with it.
    You're making a strawman argument here, I didn't say that nuclear wasn't "the largest source of carbon free energy there is," my problem is, at what cost?  Here is what I did say:
    Nuclear may be "clean" from a carbon perspective but definitely not from a radioactive waste perspective.
    Note that I am not disagreeing with you regarding nuclear from a carbon perspective.
    Little of what you wrote above, democracy inaction, bears much to the truth.
    Okay, like what?  Is nuclear waste not an issue?  Are there places a nuclear plant can be built that can be totally and completely insulated from natural disaster and if so, where?
    The biggest problem with anti-nuclear opinionators is the hubris with which they think they can't be contradicted and then get upset even reading an opposing opinion (like democracy inaction above).
    First of all, because I called you on your BS doesn't mean that I am "upset."  Second, some things - like the truth - can't be contradicted without abandoning intellectual honesty.
