Very good debate between GeorgeMonbiot (prefers NuclearEnergy to burning coal) and a nuclear opponent : http://www.monbiot.com/2012/10/09/the-heart-of-the-matter/
Lovelock calls for it :
Repeating his call for humans to use the best technology, including nuclear energy, Professor Lovelock said: "There may be a way to come to terms with Gaia and survive, and it is to take the hi-tech road.*
"We must stop fretting over the minute statistical risks of cancer from chemicals or radiation."
