President Bush recently told The Wall Street Journal that nuclear power is a "renewable source of energy." (For the full interview go to the bottom of the linked article.) One might think that he got such an impression from reading the Journal's editorial page, a strong booster of nuclear energy and a world-renown source of misinformation, pure fantasy, and outright lies. But, since the president has already told us that he doesn't read newspapers, I think I'll chalk his mistake up to the fact that he's just plain clueless.
To assist the ongoing project of orienting the president to reality a group of 48 organizations sent him a short letter explaining his error. Perhaps someone on his staff will read it to him.
