Maybe it's a good thing to keep Indian Point running so that it can melt down, helping to reduce the human population to sustainable numbers because people are too irresponsible to use birth control. Using birth control to keep our population at low numbers would be safe and effective at shutting down Indian Point and all other reactors before they melt down, but because people don't bother to use condoms our population has exploded to the point that they will never shut down Indian Point or stop hydrofracking. Population control, starting with endangered species condoms is the way to shut down Indian Point!

Some wacky comments above. lol. Starting with blaming Jimmy Carter to something about population control (??) to saying liberals calling for genocide is typical. Can anyone stay on topic for ten minutes? You'd fail in a High School debate class.
