I say yes, but it has to be used in conjunction with other sources of power. Nuclear needs to be a massive part of the transition from fossil fuels to renewable fuels.

Both positions are dangerous and both will prevent realistic, pragmatic change. I recently found this website that quite soundly takes the middle ground; outlining a better energy plan. Sadly... it is not a government website, but a union website that provides a glimmer of hope.

Being new, I'm curious as to everyone's positions on this hot topic? Is it important to you? Or a non issue?
