Nuclear Overreactions

As the Wisconsin debate exposed the unholy alliance between unions and the Democratic Party, Sean felt that we’re also beginning to see the unholy relationship between environmental groups and Democrats. Sean mentioned an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal that illustrated how we should learn from disasters and not flee everything involving risk {Article}.

Due in part to the ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan, liberals and Democrats have seized the opportunity to call for less reliance on nuclear energy because of the potential dangers involved. “Because a plane crashes we don’t stop flying, because an oil rig explodes we don’t stop drilling.

Because the Challenger space shuttle blew up we didn’t stop shuttle flights,” Sean explained. We should learn from the Japanese nuclear crisis, not let it feed a political panic over nuclear power in general. The WSJ article concludes, “Modern civilization is in the daily business of measuring and mitigating risk, but its advance requires that we continue to take risk. It would compound Japan's tragedy if the lesson America learns is that we should pursue the illusory and counterproductive goal of eliminating all risk.”
