Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A civilization which produces a significant portion of its sustenance from a factory farm system which has more adverse effect on climate change than transportation or power, which produces hugely polluting unchecked waste, which produces the conditions for advanced mutations of diseases, which has to use so much antibiotics that resistant strains are becoming the norm, and which allows no effective monitoring or regulation...

is not mature enough to split the atom with respect for the entire cycle.

You are what you eat. The technocratic view of the nuclear cycle, that it's manageable, may well be true, but it is not manageable by this civilization.

Technocrats always view nuclear power in isolation, which just can't be done.
