Blogosphere post of the day
“I consider myself unusually qualified to address these issues. One, I live about four miles away from this particular nuclear power plant. Two, I’m a liberal-environmentalist type, and until a few years ago, I thought my life was pretty good except for one thing: this damn nuclear power plant. It could blow at any moment, was my thought. How would we all escape?
Then something happened: I actually learned what nuclear power was.
They visibly reared back, like a horse spotting a snake, when I talked about it.
I might as well have said I’d begun a new career selling meth at the local elementary school playground.”
Unfortunately, the story sounds all too realistic. But this really is great, the world needs more concerned citizens like this, learning about nuclear energy and talking to the world.
