Environuts either don't care if we live in the stone-age, or are ignorant of the fact that if you have a problem with every single man-made thing, then you don't get electricity. Fortunately, the nuts are the minority of people, but they can still cause a lot of disruption and expense to complete projects.

I'm a humanist; all other factors are secondary and should serve the human interest.

Short term I see nuke floundering, but long term I think it will be the dominant electricity source. People will forget the 3 nuke accidents and technology will improve. Waste is a non-issue because storing it isn't a problem, and it's potentially useful as fuel again.

Wind is cheaper than solar, so I expect that to have greater gains outside of CA.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. -H.L Mencken.
