Atomic Insights blog has an outstanding article on the Atomic Power issue.
It is, indeed, a deeply spiritual issue. Just the same way that Globull Smarming is deeply spiritual. That is, it is based on belief rather than facts. Algore refused to get pinned down by facts in the committee hearings he attended. No other “true believer” in GW will get pinned down either. They counter that it is “settled science”. Which, translated, means “I won’t talk about it”. The same with nuclear power.
