Nuclear energy is a true option for the world

The present unfolding problem with the biofuels (more Brazillian slash and burn for the carbon friendly fuel) suggests that "green" solutions will at the very least need more working out. The environmental lobby should end its knee jerk rejection of nuclear. It is not the occasional 3 mile island or Chernobyl that is causing climate change, nor all those horrid atom bomb tests.

If India and China keep expanding then the world will soon be sucked dry of oil, and a drying planet will have to give over much of its arable land to biofuels. Or we can harness the power of the atom and hope those cold fusion chaps get their skates on.
