Another Blogger Considers Nuclear Energy

The blogger behind AustinPermie is in the midst of making up her mind about nuclear energy. Here's something she wrote recently about Patrick Moore that I think every supporter of nuclear energy ought to keep in mind:

As a poli sci person, I have to say that all the negative sites I've seen on Moore's position, makes it seem like a big campaign angry at the 'defection' of one of its champions. Laden with editorial venom is unfortunately not conducive for a real debate.
Interesting. Stop by and be sure to offer your thoughts, but, as always, please be polite. For Part I of her post, click here.

Dear Eric,
Australia has had a major policy reversal on uranium mining and nuclear this weekend. Would you please consider an article about their "Nuclear Phase-In"?

Thanks,

Hi Bill -

There's a summary of what happened in Australia here.

Also, Nuclear Australia has been doing extensive coverage of the issues Down Under.

It's been a terrific weekend!!

Best Wishes!

Thanks for the referral guys. I come from a line of family where people are expected to agree to disagree. I grew up with heated political discussions during birthday visits, until someone would say..time out (the dutch equivalent of it) and say, you, would you like another beer, another sherry for you? And then people would move onto something else. I did not realize the wealth of pro-nuclear blogs. Of course, other people would consider this a worthy venue to look into. And that comes with the ability to look for 'truth', no matter if it might do away with all your preconceived notions. I need to do a whole lot more reading before I can honestly take a stand one way or another..
thanks again and now I'll have to make sure to catch up on reading some of 'ya'll's (yes, the ya'll here comes in plural lol) posts!

Canada also seems to be changing:

By the way, it is really difficult to feed leads such as the above article to NEI Nuclear Notes. How are we supposed to do it?
