Those who are familiar with George Monbiot know he is a tireless crusader for environmental causes. While I believe he sometimes goes too far espousing the cause of global warming, I have always given him credit for sincerity.
Given his passion for environmental protection, I pleased recommend his new column on the often deceptive and sometimes downright false claims of those against nuclear power. His column concludes:
There is little doubt in my mind that current nuclear power is sufficiently safe. Next generation nuclear power is VERY safe and much less expensive. America, and the world, need to be moving forward with the new versions of nuclear power as quickly as possible, regardless of where we stand on the global warming issue.
