The use of Reason and reasonable argumentation, the reclaiming of the idea of Progress and the struggle against dogma. In this post-modern world, reinventing Enlightenment is of the utmost importance.

Nuclear power? Listen to women

A poll conducted yesterday in the UK revealed that the country’s public opinion is extremely divided regarding this affair of building more nuclear power plants. 48% are against, 45% in favour and 7% don’t know.

However, a dramatic change occurs when we scrutinize the numbers of the poll by gender. In the group of those who support nuclear expansion males represent 57%. In those who oppose it, women represent 57%.

Why is there such a difference between males and females when it comes to nuclear power expansion? Why do women seem to dislike the idea so much? Maybe because, unlike men, they actually give birth to their sons and daughters?
