Is it your position, then, that global warming is a real phenomenon and 
caused by the burning of fossil fuels? If you don't believe that to be

Are you saying that in this special case of nuclear power, you don't 
believe in the invisible hand of the free market creating the optimal 
solution? You do know that nuclear power is more expensive than other 
power, right?
