Opposition to Nuclear Melting Down?

Cracks are beginning to emerge in the anti-nuclear power alliance. The alternative publication LA City Beat today notes that while traditional environmental groups like the Sierra Club still strongly oppose nuclear power, reluctant support for the power is coming from some unlikely places (like left-wing entertainer/comedian Bill Maher who stated on the air that safety concerns are over stated).

In California we still have the law on the books requiring a solution to the problem of spent nuclear rod storage before we can build any new nuclear plants, but its future could be in doubt.
