palegray.net writes "Wired is running a story on how Gwyneth Cravens, a former nuke protester and author, has changed her views on nuclear power as a viable solution to feed the world's growing energy needs. With the exponential increase in electricity generation requirements in the U.S. alone, how important is nuclear power to the future of our economy? From the article:
"Every day spent burning coal for power translates into damaged lungs and ecosystem destruction. If the world wants to keep plugging in big-screen TVs and iPods, it needs a steady source of power. Wind and solar can't produce the "base-load" (or everyday) steady supply needed, and the only realistic — and safe — alternative is nuclear.""
