The four scientists who have advocated more nuclear power as a solution to global warming should go to Fukushima.  Atomic energy is a failed technology and the radiation now constantly gushing from that stricken site is already harming us all.  

The Tokyo Electric Power Company is incapable of handling this worsening crisis. The Japanese government must turn the site over to a global task force of the world's best scientists and engineers, The moving of hot fuel rods from the Unit Four fuel pool, scheduled to start soon, may be the most dangerous engineering task ever undertaken.

Renewable energy, along with increased efficiency, is more than ready to power our entire planet safely, cheaply and cleanly.  It's being shown in Germany and elsewhere that a mix of solar, wind, bio-fuels, tidal, geothermal, ocean thermal and other forms of renewables can provide the base-load power needed to run our advanced society.

No technology but nuclear is capable of inflicting upon us all the horrifying catastrophe now unfolding at Fukushima.

Instead of wasting our time and insulting our intelligence by advocating still MORE nuclear reactors, these scientists should lend their alleged expertise to do whatever they possibly can to contain the harm being done at Fukushima.  To do less is grotesquely irresponsible."
