Anti-Nuclear Quote of the Day
I always enjoy reading the work of Stewart Peterson over at NIOF – you should, by all means, go check it out.
One regular blog theme you’ll note over there is the “anti-nuclear quote of the day”. I quite like it, so I thought I might post one of my own.
Whilst it might come across slightly cynical to you, if anti-nuclear people didn’t often make a habit of saying inane, nonsensical things, perhaps people like me wouldn’t look at the anti-nuclear movement with quite so much cynicism.
“Ask someone in the city of Hiroshima what the think about nuclear power.”
— from the discussion thread here.
Sadly, some people couldn’t tell you the difference between nuclear power, nuclear weapons, somatic cell nuclear transfer and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. That, in itself, is nothing to be ashamed of, but these people don’t even care to know. They see the word nuclear, and that’s it. It’s bad, evil and stupid and kills your children. If you support it, they’ll call you names.
