Response to Anti-Nuclear Letter

Nuclear power generation is regularly attacked by individuals and groups who, on principle, believe that nuclear energy of any sort is simply bad for society. This is an exchange between me and a local Athenian. It’s brief, but represents my personal position and also reflects some technical shortsightedness on the part of some who engage in this issue. I was somewhat amused at the anti-nuclear guy’s proposal to “dig a deep hole, then boil the water near where the lava lives”.
