Andrew Revkin has noticed the diametrically opposite conclusions extracted from the recent events in Fukushima. He is comparing two opinions in the Guardian:
Japan’s horror reveals how thin is the edge we live on by Bill McKibben
Why Fukushima made me stop worrying and love nuclear power by George Monbiot
The difference between the two opinions of the two environmentalists – who are approximately as famous as they are infamous – couldn’t be more striking. Note that Bill McKibben has founded the movement worshiping the number 350, among many other similar idiotic concepts.
To be sure, comparable differences in the opinion about the nuclear energy exist between climate realists, too. Yes, I do realize that many TRF readers oppose nuclear energy. However, the pro-nuclear vs anti-nuclear tension is simply not that important between the climate realists because all of us know that we ultimately have one key realistic energy “alternative” – it’s called the fossil fuels.
