12. Gore isn't anti-nuclear
He just doesn't think it will play a big role.

He could, of course, be triangulating. It's understandable for him to "keep his powder dry" for other fights.

My own prediction is a little different. We will all (well, most of us) be dutifully anti-nuclear until we realize just how much of a disaster is taking place due to the power-down. Then, we will demand it ASAP, even if we have to build reactors out of old coffee cans, garden hose, and origami birds.

I would much prefer that we plan for those days today, whether or not we commit to nuclear power. But our modern market economy is so geared to "just-in-time" planning that it may not be able to anticipate when time has run out.
