    In fact, that was my first post in this diary, I think, and was an explanation of my HR.

    But you choose to bring a typically false, diversionary "argument' with no basis, which is essentially an adhominem attack, accusing me of subjectively and improperly dropping donuts...too typical of the absolutely unprincipled tactics of nuke advocates.

    If you want to argue, at least bring something material, rather than jive bullshit, mmk?

    Democracy is the most fundamental revolutionary principle. Information is the ultimate key.

      I think you all spend too much time trolling each other for either side to take the high ground, and I think both sides show a woeful lack of trustworthy evidence.

      Where are the peer-reviewed scientific journals that back up what either side says?

      This is such an important issue, and both sides aren't using neutral, peer-reviewed scientists.

      They pick the sources that prove the points they want to believe.

      So yes, I'm saying don't hide-rate someone accusing people of sensationalism whether they're supporting or opposing nuclear power.

      Few people on either side have written diaries that live up to any appropriate evidential standard on a divisive issue.

      I am neutral. I am willing to be convinced by either side. I have listened when your side tells me I can't trust the IAEA because I understand corporate malfeasance when it comes to influencing government agencies.

      So I'm waiting for someone, anyone, to drop a peer-reviewed journal article.

      So far, I haven't seen that happen.

      Maybe I missed it. Do you have links?

      But I really wish that both sides would stop being assholes to each other.

      I don't mean you specifically because you seem angry but reasonable. Perhaps your HR was appropriate. I just wish it had come from someone who didn't have a dog in this fight, and I get so tired of the comment wars where very little neutral and trustworthy evidence is provided.
