Paul Newman, who died recently, took a carefully guarded secret to his grave - something that would have disgraced him in Hollywood.
Did he have a secret mistress? (No, that wouldn't disgrace him.) Did he have a clandestine fleet of SUVs? (That's more like it.) Was he addicted to McDonald's hamburgers? No, Paul Newman was a closet but increasingly open supporter of nuclear power.
This is so bloody infuriating: a prominent environmentalist who listens with an open mind to the arguments and is gradually persuaded to turn pro-nuclear, but who feels he can't admit it because it will harm his charity interests. Climate change is the most important issue facing the planet, yet people who care passionately about the subject are being gagged by peer-pressure.
This planet really is fucked if we're not even allowed to mention our last, best hope.
For the record, I am pro-nuclear-power. (But you probably already knew that.)
