our bold atomic future blah blah blah

WorldChanging has a good overview of the “arguments for and against nuclear power”:http://www.worldchanging.com/archives/002147.html as a solution to the current (and near future) oil/global warming/environment crisis. My personal view is that nuclear power can be useful in a few isolated cases, but improving efficiency and developing distributed alternative energy (solar, wind, geothermal) is a better use of our time and effort.

Oh, if only we could harness the mighty power of Internet debate!
