New Nuclear Supporters

Nuclear power has found support even from such iconic Warmists as Al Gore, Hugh Montefiore (Greenpeace/Friends of the Earth), and James Lovelock. Recent surveys found that the vast majority of members of the U.S. and European scientific communities considered the benefits of nuclear power far outweighed the risks. Substituting coal for wood helped launch the Industrial Revolution. Substituting petroleum for whale oil launched the automotive and plastics revolutions. The substitution of nuclear power for fossil fuel was delayed by the fact that both the US and UK had plenty of cheap coal, oil, and gas. Otherwise we would doubtless have gone fully nuclear decades ago, as has France, which currently utilizes over 80% nuclear-powered electricity.
