Asked to argue for the anti-nuclear viewpoint in this debate, Siegel suggests that despite its potential, "nuclear energy has not overcome a range of risks–safety, nuclear proliferation, and waste–to sustain its growth in the marketplace."

Highlights of Jonas Siegel's portion of the conversation as well as the entire discussion on the future of nuclear energy can be found on the Mother Jones website.
