You don’t get quoted in the New York Times everyday — which according some of my

This is an excellent article by Kirk Johnson pointing out that as we move into a low-carbon economy, we will face some difficult trade-offs.
I strongly believe that nuclear power is not needed — better choices are already here. But also believe we must have an open public dialog about this. I have a great deal of confidence that our fellow citizens are capable of understanding the issues and making the right choices.
My quote from this article was even featured in a 2009 book called “Engineering Ethics : concepts and cases” – Hey, maybe we can all get along as we walk down the road of sustainability.
