Who is "Ann Denise Lanes", Charley? She appears to be just another anonymous anti-nuclear activist - member of a vanishing cult.

There isn't much irrational fanatics like Ann can do to stop real progress on climate change, but you don't do anything to help sell hydrogen by devoting a post to her message of fear and ignorance.

This is true -- nuclear has enjoyed somewhat of a resurrection in recent years as a discussion point, leaning mostly on its reliability and resiliency. How green or clean is this power source? It's unclear to me as a regular citizen and I think an open discussion around nuclear would help clear a lot of this up. However, nuclear faces a long road ahead and will probably require millions of more dollars in P.R. if it will ever be accepted as a foundational energy source in the U.S.
