Prisoners Dilemma at ANS Nuclear Cafe

Today I have a guest post at ANS Nuclear Cafe: Prisoner's Dilemma and New Types of Nuclear Reactors.

In this post I consider the question: Can nuclear advocates be simultaneously in favor of both

  • existing reactors and
  • developing advanced reactors?

I think we can be publicly in favor of both.  However, sometimes we act like the two prisoners in Prisoners Dilemma who attack each other. This ends up with a bad deal for both prisoners (or both types of reactors).

I hope you will read my blog post and comment on it!
