30. Good twist of something I never said
But truly wrong.

The idea that nuke plants will fix the problem is absurd.

The fix point, if we ever get there, is one where we don't commit pollution.

Reduce, reduce, reduce, is the answer. We are so far out on the limb that we need to go back and not crawl out further, as nukes would take us.

All in all, no refutation of my o.p. has occurred... instead you have shown that the premise was correct. Thanks.
