36. Since the stakeholders for nuclear and coal are virtually identical
Edited on Sat Feb-26-11 04:56 PM by kristopher
You really don't have a leg to stand on. That is why you NEVER discuss the actual cost/benefits of nuclear power and instead rely on trying to frame yourself as a renewable supporter who endorses nuclear. The problem with that is really simple - the ONLY route to logically supporting nuclear power is to make false claims regarding both renewables and nuclear. You have to claim that
1) renewables cannot do the job and
2) that nuclear is not associated with the very real ills that plague it (cost, safety, time to construct, proliferation and wastes)

Neither of those positions can be supported.

You say you only want 4gen nuclear, yet still never miss a chance to defend the present industry; so, you are caught in a classic dilemma. As I said, your task seems to be defending and promoting the nuclear industry by linking it with renewables. Unfortunately, that cannot be done without falsely attacking renewables or falsely arguing for nuclear. No matter how many internet versions of you come here to try and accomplish the goal, they are all going to face the same problem you have - your position is indefensible.
