Christine Todd Whitman gives pro-nuclear-power pitch at Telegraph  

UPDATE: Here's the story, which is pretty much as I expected.

Later this mroning I'm going to be interviewing Christine Todd Whitman, ex-NJ governor and now the public face of the Clean and Safe Energy coalition (CASEenergy), which advocates more nuclear energy as part of the world's global-warming battle.

She is doing a publicity swing around the country, and The Telegraph has invited her to sit in on the editorial board, an old newspaper tradition in which various mucky-mucks make a pitch to local papers. (It's nice that some people still think that the support of newspapers is useful!)

I largely agee that nuclear power has to be a big part of the world's energy mix, especially in light of the coal-powered increase in warming gases fueled by China and India. But the problems of waste, nuclear proliferation and cost are big, big stumbling blocks.
