But that doesn’t mean he knows everything. In an interview with Brand in the NewScientist, we learn that he is touting nuclear power as a solution:

A new generation won’t have this prejudice about nuclear power, says Brand.

I don’t buy it, because there are bound to be more nuclear power plant mishaps, for a number of reasons. Many were built by a lot of stoners, back before drug testing was mandatory, for one thing.

Another 3 Mile Island, Chernobyl, or equivalent, will indeed help update new generations about the folly of heading in that direction. Then where will we be? Hoping we have alternatives.
