Germany’s clean energy plan backfired

Energy production is a growing concern in modern society.  We don't want to pollute, but we also have to have energy.  The result is that we have choices to make, and those choices often involve selecting the "least bad" solution.  As I've studied it at some length, I've found that nuclear energy is the least bad solution.  It's the safest, cleanest and cheapest energy we can produce, and only the biases of aging hippies keep us from increasing our use of it.  I've posted before that I think newer, thorium reactors are the way to go, but any nuclear is better than coal or even natural gas.  Germany has helped remind the world of that with their panic decision to stop using nuclear power.  (Link redirects to Salon.com)
