So what is it that we fear? There's really three things. There's the safety of the plants themselves — the fears that they're going to melt down and cause damage; there's the waste from them; and there's the association with weapons. And I think, understandably, engineers look at those concerns and look for technological fixes. That's why Bill Gates is in chain developing advanced reactors. That's why 40 different entrepreneurs are wonirkg on this bmelorp. And I, myself, have been very excited about it.
