There has been a lot of controversy over the “awkward kids second chance” article we posted last week. This story posed the question that perhaps Nuclear power generation should get a second chance. The article spoke of its cleanliness, its safety record, its environmental impact and its availability in areas where there is little other option.

As by now, if you have read any of my posts, I am sure you would have started to realize I speak my mind and say what I’m thinking. I am not pushing an agenda, nor am I trying to antagonize anyone. I am simply making sure that all the opinions are expressed and no one side of an argument gets all the press. A better-informed public can make better decisions. With that in mind, I am about to talk some plain common sense on a subject as polarizing as Roe v. Wade.

Since the onset of atmospheric nuclear weapons testing in the pacific, the anti-nuclear lobby (namely our friends from Greenpeace) has spread their opinions on nuclear “anything”. They have told the world how bad it is, how dangerous it is and that we should avoid it like the plague. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m sure the population of Bikini Atoll would agree that exploding a 20 megaton warhead above grandma’s grass hut was not something they enjoyed, and they and Greenpeace were quite right on that one. The world listened, and most countries with a conscience don’t do it anymore, well done… what’s next.
