I live in an area served by 40% nuclear power, I have a degree related to the field and I've been an advocate for it for some time. However I completely understand why people see it as unfavorable, and I understand the drawbacks and concerns people have. I presently see it as our only out to climate change but I think being reliant on it eternally should not be the end goal.
Mostly I'm just curious to know how you feel about nuclear energy, and why you feel the way you do, if you feel comfortable sharing. I know exactly why it is controversial but that's all the more reason I'm interested in hearing from a primarily woman-oriented community. Like most things in stem we get a male dominated perspective even in laypeople's discussion.
(Additionally if you have any questions I can try to answer myself or get links to resources that answer those questions. With nuclear power I definitely take a "facts over fear" approach, but I also respect that for many people the facts can reveal new fears.)
Edit: I have loved reading and responding to the comments here. It's nice to see people being respectful about it even if you aren't in favor of it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
