#3415: The final nail in the coffin

Yeah, you guys are really pro-science, aren't you?

Just about had it with Arse Technica. That article is nothing but anti-nuclear scaremongering--just what you'd expect from a site which was all about anti-technological environmentalism rather than one that was about science.
