The environmental movement is definitely split along fault lines that divide at least three ways relative to nuclear energy. The first group includes thought and opinion leaders who previously opposed nuclear energy, but now see it as necessary and as a feasible path to address reduction of CO2 emissions. The second group opposes nuclear energy because they believe CO2 emissions are best reduced, and more quickly, with solar, wind, and natural gas plants. The third group oppose nuclear energy because of ideological reasons, e.g., it is part of the industrial order of the world and we're better off going back to nature or off the grid, etc. Some in the third group are OK with solar and wind energy as being part of the solution.
Most opposition to nuclear energy willfully ignores the issue of baseload demand from a growing world population especially in countries like India and China. And Al Gore's famous flip remark that reactors only come in one size - large -has been overtaken by the development of a range of small reactor designs. They will eventually attain market share on the grid and in distributed power applications.
You can't stop people from wanting the live off the grid. The concern I have is that some of them want to take the rest of the world along for the ride.
