    James Hansen and three other PhD-wielding climate scientists published an open letter Sunday calling on the world to ramp up the development and deployment of “safer nuclear energy systems” to help slow climate change.

    Safer than Fukushima? Three Mile Island? Strong enough to withstand tsunamis and earthquakes? They want to take a chance and build them at $10 billion each. What should we tell James Hansen?

    To thine ownself be true

      for the climate saints to see our wasteful energy-economy for what it really is?

      Maybe that's the real tipping point.
