Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
is our refusal to even consider using less energy.

I've said repeatedly that we should, in order of priority do:

  1. energy savings and conservation
  2. renewables
  3. nuclear
  4. hydrocarbon burning to the least extent possible.

All our governments are doing the exact opposite right now, and utilities are busy BUILDING coal-fired plants all over the place with hardly a peep. In that context, the argument that nuclear is a much better alternative to coal is actually quite relevant and urgent.

It's not the best solution, but it's a massive progress nevertheless.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
