NEI Video at the World Energy Congress

The following is a short reel that's running inside of NEI's booth at the World Energy Congress in Rome this week:

As you might imagine, some folks are upset that we even showed up.

The great irony here is that while Greepeace goes around hanging banners demanding an "energy revolution" they are simultaneously protesting almost every technology which could actually advance the revolution they claim to support. I for one am in favor of the environment and am in the schools environmental advocacy group where I actively work to support recycling and conservation, but these "BANANA" type environmentalists give the rest a bad name. It is not good enough to be AGAINST everything, as some point you have to be FOR a real alternative. All these people do it preserve the status quo by protesting everything.

That's a good reel but it does not tell the whole story - I would say it's a bit too pro-nuclear and one-sided. Yes, there are certain undeniable benefits out of nuclear power, but what about the drawbacks which are never on the screen?
