  • SHOULD AVOID DOGMATISM IN THE NUCLEAR POWER DEBATE

AFFIRMATIVE

  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: EFFICIENCY DOESN’T JUSTIFY USE
  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: USE WILL BE LIMITED TO A SMALL AMOUNT OF OUR OVERALL POWER
  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: NUCLEAR POWER IS UNSAFE
  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: “SAFE” RELEASE THINKING IS BOGUS
  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: BAD ACCIDENT OR MELTDOWN INEVITABLE

  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: THE AGE OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS CALLS INTO QUESTION THEIR SAFETY
  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: CAN ONLY BE COMPETITIVE WITH MAJOR SUBSIDIES
  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: CAPITAL REQUIREMENTS MAKE IT EXPENSIVE
  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: MORE EXPENSIVE THAT ALTERNATIVES
  • NUCLEAR POWER BAD: NUCLEAR POWER POSES A RISK OF TERRORISM

  • ALTERNATIVES BETTER: ALTERNATIVES PROVIDE A BETTER SOLUTION TO GLOBAL WARMING
  • GLOBAL WARMING: MUST FIRST RESOLVE SAFETY AND ECONOMIC VIABILITY BEFORE CONSIDERING NUCLEAR POWER TO COMBAT GLOBAL WARMING
  • GLOBAL WARMING: SUBSTANTIAL LEAD TIME WOULD BE REQUIRED TO RAMP NUCLEAR POWER TO IMPACT GLOBAL WARMING
  • A/T: FEW NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS HAVE OCCURRED IN THE HISTORY OF NUCLEAR POWER
  • A/T: LOW PROBABILITY OF NUCLEAR DISASTER JUSTIFIES USE
