What the frothing old hippies are gargling about is that we shouldn't be operating 1950's era technology in the 21st century... and I would agree. However, by chaining their anti-nuclear weapons protests to nuclear power generation, those selfsame unwashed jackson Browne groupies created the conditions for the Fukushima disaster to occur. Had opposition to new generating stations not happened, all these old plants would have been replaced with newer generation units with much higher reliability and safety before now.  As it was, Fukushima was already being shut down and retired when the tsunami hit.

What the hippies SHOULD be supporting is replacing all the old reactors right away with 4th and 5th generation designs that physically cannot malfunction in these ways.  We should be moving ahead with Thorium and high temperature gas-cooled reactors, where the coolant is helium, not water.
We should be backing Gates' new reactor design.

Now we have to wait for the natural gas/fracking bubble to burst and the perpetually terrified mundanes to age-out, so a younger generation can do this job RIGHT.
