Global Warming and Reefs

Dear Craig,

We agree on the immense challenges posed by global warming and the
dependence on fossil fuels, but I don't understand why you seem to think
that the only solution is to go nuclear. And I think you're wrong to
characterize the many who oppose such a solution as "hysterical." Are the
people of Chernobyl, and those in surrounding countries affected by that
1986 disaster, "cattle" because bitter experience has taught them to oppose
nuclear energy?

There are other solutions and they are well-known. In no particular order:
using less fossil fuel, preserving forests, switching to sustainable (and
non-polluting) energy resources.

Trying not to froth,
