Can't Have It Both Ways, Folks!

I'd bet good money that, over the past thirty or forty years, more deaths and destruction of the environment can be chalked up to fossil fuel power generation than to all the nuclear incidents, bombs included, since the atom was split.
We want to improve the environment and we can start now. I don't suggest nuclear be made part of a long term permanent solution but GODDAMMIT, folks! Get with the program! It's a start, and it's a good start and in the decade it will take to scale up renewable energy sources to emit the kind of power at a cheap cost, we can wean ourselves off oil, natural gas and especially coal.
Good grief, grow the fuck up already!
