Even old nuclear tech is even safer than any other power generation method. There have been less deaths from nuke than wind turbines, for instance, and wind generation accounts for a much smaller percentage of power generation as nuclear...

I've heard some commentary about how it's wrong to push Greta into the public view, but I don't agree with that. She seems mature enough to generally know what she's doing, and she's clearly a bright kid. She has chosen to accept a public presence, as evidenced by her initial protesting in front of a government building. It's not so much that she's been a puppet of a political agenda, but instead the result of her own efforts and motivations.

The problem I have with Greta's rhetoric is it contains no facts or proposed solutions. Her speeches rants are a war cry, not a call to rational action. They are in the same vein as the other screams kids are making as they skip school, even if formulated much more eloquently.

I look forward to hearing from Greta when her message contains a formulation of the problem, or a proposed solution. She'll get there, because she's a smart kid.
