Michael, I very much agree with your August 23, 09:44 comment, about consumerism etc.
There are of course political issues deeply entwined with the points you mentioned, but right now I am far too miserable to write about them.
I agree that no more water-cooled power reactors should be built, especially near the rising oceans. If Weinberg had not been sacked, for political reasons, we would probably have clean, safe, inexpensive nuclear power by now. But please don’t get the dangers of nuclear power out of perspective. Mining kills many more people, and burning coal releases more radioactivity. Even hydroelectric has a higher death toll; look up some of the dam failure disasters.
