Personally I'm interested in thorium. China seems to be going in that direction. I assume we'll be buying their reactors in ten years.
My point is that opposition to solutions comes from so many directions. I don't think it coincides with the antievolution crowd.
The rejection of science is precisely from people who want to do no solutions at all, i.e. maintain the status quo. Rejections of solutions (engineering, not science) are at least based in reality, whether correct or no. Wind power won't work well where I live, because there is like, no wind.
