RelentlesslyOptimistic: The OTHER Nuclear Option

Relentlessly Optimistic is an excellent web site. However, I just posted a long disagreement in regard to electricity and nuclear power. The fact that many folks miss is that we continue to use more and more electricity because it is relatively efficient. We continue to buy more efficient appliances but my electric toothbrush uses more electricity than hand brushing ever did. My TV uses more than my radio.

Nuclear power is the safe, clean and economical. Since we stopped building nuclear power plants, the US has built coal plants that burn 400 million extra pounds of coal.

Good Blog but wrong conclusions!
