Various and a-sundry

Made good progress on Cawdor today. 2200 words closer to the end. All that’s left is the big fight and resolution afterwards. I have decided to hold back  a little information from the final version of the ending. Hopefully it will still be satisfying without being a cliff-hanger.

Here’s an interesting and short debate on if the Green movement should embrace nuclear power.

I am pro-nuclear power and remained so after the debate. I do not think the anti-nuke debater presented a very strong case. he played to fear not reason, and I thought he was very disingenuous about the construction times (treating them like constants not subject to political will.) or the footprint issue for wind.

Both side distorted the footprint of wind power, but I think the anti-nuke side distorted more by only counting the actual size of the towers. Please.

But here, watch for yourself.
