A Change of Heart on Nuclear Power

When Patrick Moore founded Greenpeace 30 years ago, he says that he believed "nuclear energy was synonymous with nuclear holocaust," but today it may just be the energy source that can save the planet.

He explains his change of heart in a Washington Post op-ed piece.

FYI: Stewart Brand, the founder of The Whole Earth Catalog mentioned in the linked article, has also endorsed a novel of nuclear power by a longtime industry insider (me). This is a good lay person's guide to the good and the bad of this power source. (There's plenty of both). The book is available at no cost to readers at - and they seem to like it, judging from their homepage comments.
