You sound almost giddy with anticipation. It's a real shame that in New Jersey, we didn't...

...get a radiation leak that could inspire oodles of insipid cheering from scientifically illiterate anti-nukes who could feel justified to ignore the death and destruction in our state - it's frankly unimaginable - so they could all burn coal and gas to express their dire hope that someone, anyone, could die from said radiation leak, so as to justify their insipid paranoia.

This is, of course, what happened at Fukushima. The morally and intellectually vapid anti-nuke community ignored the twenty thousand people who died from things having nothing to do with nuclear energy, to hope and pray that someone, anyone would die from radiation.

Again, it's too bad that we couldn't help you in New Jersey.

I've just been reconnected to our nuclear power plants output. For five days, I lived in pretty primitive conditions, no lights, no heat, all my refrigerated food spoiled, supermarkets closed, out of all supplies, but please be assured, I feel for your need to have a nuclear disaster.

Now.

As far as I'm concerned, what happened to my home state is a function of climate change, which itself is a function of the fear, ignorance, moral and intellectual vacuity, and rote dogma of the anti-nuke cults, in their tireless efforts to destroy the infrastructure of the world's largest, by far, source of climate change.

Climate change is now a done deal. It will roast, smash, and destroy nearly everyone in the future.

What will come in the future is more of what's outside my door right now, the destroyed trees that will now dump their carbon into the atmosphere; more crop failures like those that have been seen on every continent in the last decade, more Katrinas, so on and so on.

It will make the deaths caused by air pollution - 3.3 million of them - half in children under the age of five seem like a walk in the park.

From where I sit, the anti-nuke cults, with their fear, ignorance, scientific illiteracy, and their selective attention can go fuck themselves. In my mind, they're simply murderers.

But that's just my opinion, and in truth, maybe I'm a little testy because of the destruction around here.

Again, I apologize for our highly educated and highly trained nuclear professionals in this state for not giving you something to crow about.

Congratulations though on your efforts to destroy nuclear infrastructure around the world and replace it with fracked gas, coal and similar stuff.

Heckuva job.

You must be very, very, very, very, very, very proud.
