Sigh of Despair

(Posted by John. In case you missed it, I live in Ontario.)

Well, this is depressing.
TORONTO (CP) - Nuclear power may be the best option to fulfil Ontario's future electricity needs, despite its obvious downsides - including Chornobyl-type accidents and radioactive waste, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Wednesday.

Natural gas is too expensive, wind power is unreliable, coal plants pollute the air and Ontario's hydroelectric potential has largely been maxed out - leaving nuclear power expansions "on the table" for the province, McGuinty said.
Regulars will know that I think this is the wrong call. I don't know what more I can say that I haven't said before, ad nauseam.
