Lovelock on Nuclear Power

Saving Gaia

Gaia Hypothesis creator James Lovelock speaks out in support of nuclear power. He sees it as the only green solution to global warming.

While there has clearly been a slight rise in temperature in the past century, it is still uncertain that human activity has been a significant contributor to this. However, if we wait for certainty, it may be too late for some people and ecosystems. Lovelock correctly points out that renewables are only a partial solution and that nuclear power actually has a very good safety record. Green opposition to nuclear power is misguided. Space solar power seems to be the only other long term energy solution that preserves our civilization, and it would take longer to bring it on line.
