Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'd like this to be a place for serious discussion of nuclear power, especially as Germany's actions have made it an international issue (as if Fukushima didn't). I'd also like to see the latest science, news, and even speculation, find free reign hier.

And i'd like to see if diametrically opposed positions can find a way to discuss without dissing. And i'd especially like to see whether and how pro-nuclear people now view their industry, and how they adjust to this, should i say?, unmitigated disaster?

methinks Japan is fucked. are there other views? methinks the damage might have wider effects than Japan.

Thinking it through, i wanted to have a discussion about the technology, the economics, the social policy... without resorting to a discussion of the biological effects of low-level radiation.

But that's wishful thinking, you can't separate the two.

So on with it, please.
