Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know what you mean about "lies." I stated my opinion. That no one knows what will happen in the future and that nuclear power plants are scary because when things go wrong, they can go horribly wrong. Such as creating a disaster 'beyond what you had reckoned plausible.' It is this precise unpredictable quality of getting power this way that causes me concern. It has nothing to do with seeking advice from Greenpeace on whether or not the sun also rises.

As far as cost effectiveness of EROI for nukes, I have no reason to doubt what you say. However, with respect to 'why' alternative renewable energy has only been a promise since the 1970s, my point here was that up until relatively recently (and still not to a great extent) TPTB have chosen to go the nuke route instead. Perhaps not only because it's cleaner, but probably mostly because of ROI.

Thomas was responding to melo's comment, using his best messianism to frame the discussion from his own version of reality.
