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."
