So, anybody want to convince me why nuclear energy is a bad idea? You know, relative to the alternatives? As I see it, coal, oil and gas have various pollution issues (including, perhaps, carbon) as well as limited availability. Wind and solar are useful in some places but tend to be too decentralized and expensive to utilize in the places where they're needed the most (a power transport problem). How are the issues with nuke power (security, disposal) worse than all of that? And don't nukes have the advantage of zero emissions, sufficient supply, and enormous capacity?
I guess we could just wait for fusion, but I'm imagining that India and China would, given the choice, prefer to industrialize now rather than later, no?
