I read a very interesting article on nuclear power plants in GQ magazine last night. It's an older issue, it's got Eric Bana on the cover. Here's a link to the online version, which admittedly is hard to read compared to the print version. The article is unabashedly pro-nuclear. While reading it, I realized I'd never really taken the time to get educated an form an opinion about nukes for power. It seems the three main downsides are security, the waste the plant generates, and the possibility of meltdown. I am still undecided about it. I've just been thinking about power plants a lot lately, vis a vis electric cars. I'd like to get a discussion going about it, as I respect most of the opinions of the posters in the PRSI forum.
