I was having a water cooler moment at work just the other day.  We are all engineers and overwhelmingly pro-nuclear.  Some of the guys even have degrees in nuclear engineering, have taken nuclear engineering course work, or have worked at nuclear facilities.

Question: Why are so many engineers pro-nuclear? Call us nerds if you have to. I really don’t mind. We are not employed by the nuclear industry and don’t have any financial interest in nuclear energy. So why are we pro-nuclear? I guess because we understand the limitless energy contained in the nucleus of some certain heavy elements, like thorium. And these elements are abundant and can provide everyone on earth with abundant, clean energy for millennia.
