Gundersen calls for a freeze

April 30, 2011

Arnie Gundersen is that rare breed — someone technically savvy but not blinded by what he knows. He is a severe critic of the nuclear industry — and he knows what he is talking about, because the came out of that industry.

Knowing what he knows, he says here, in typically low-pressure, rational style, that the time has come to put out the yellow flag, and put a moratorium on new nuclear construction. His yellow flag analogy is to car races, where there has been a pile-up. I think the yellow flag is a good analogy, but I would related in not to car wrecks, but to the flag ships used to fly to warn other ships that they were carrying the plague.
