Thinking nuclear

I have always looked at nuclear power with a lot of skepticism. Not because I think it is impossible to solve the plant safety and waste disposal issues, but because I have no faith in the industry's willingness to put those issues first and profitability second.

Still, the idea of safer, smaller, distributed nuclear plants has intrigued me since the 1970s. A recently-updated article on the subject makes the idea seem a little closer to reality.
