Conservatives: if you're reading this, I don't need to convince you that nuclear is the way to go, and has been for some time.
However, it's not us that has to be convinced. We need talking points for the social-issue leftists. Here are two that might impress them.
- The only way that can keep the lights on right now without emitting carbon and has current infrastructure is nuclear. It's a solution that's here now. Wind and solar don't come close.
- One of the founders of Greenpeace is pro-nuclear.
Much as you don't like these, if you're serious, this is the time to sound off. Like it or not, some form of cap-and-trade is going to pass in this Democratic Congress, and if the GOP lets it through without at least guaranteeing that nuclear is part of the package, then someone is really asleep at the wheel. Fortunately Lamar Alexander and John McCain are already weighing in. Get out there and support them.
