Yes! And I would say Science and Engineering!

Extremely informative diavlog. John seems to be abandoning his anxieties about nuclear power. There's nothing like reality checks.

Rod did a wonderful job of explaining the ins and outs of nuclear power, use of fission fuels and the business pressures towards and away from this form of energy source.

As a devil's advocate, of course, one would like to hear the counter arguments, from a technical perspective. Is the information accurate? How much of it is a matter of opinion and not facts?

The issue of "blind", "religious" (almost) type environmentalism was well laid out and debunked. It is true that general principles don't always work well, and the environmental movement may have to revise its position on the use of nuclear power.

Looking forward to more comments.
