Inauguration Parade Route News

If you're one of the estimated 2 million people expected to brave the cold and descend upon Washington, D.C. this weekend for the inauguration ceremonies, you may encounter one of these NEI ads along your travels.

inauguration-parade-routeThe ad, Nuclear Energy is a Cool Way to Reduce Global Warming, can be found on 25 different bus stands along the inauguration parade route and throughout the city. Willing to take your hands out of your pockets long enough to take a photograph of the Polar Bear ad? Send them into us here and we'll get 'em up on the blog.

I like the ad. Any chance of being able to purchase a poster sized version?

Every time the nuclear industry uses the disproven theory of global warming to advance their agenda, their integrity, credibility and intelligence takes another hit. When the superstition of global warming is finally exposed and accepted by most Americans (44% currently consider non-human effects to be the cause of temperature cycles) what will NEI say to regain credibility? NEI needs to have some major re-education on the global warming theory and its imminent disappearance. They are doing themselves and the future of nuclear power a grave disservice.

Mike - The nuclear industry could go back to the fact that nuclear is also the cheapest to produce, creates good jobs, and doesn't require that we knock the tops off of mountains to fuel them. It could maybe use the fact that electrification of our transportation system is probably the only way to move away from importing billions of barrels of oil every year. It could use these, and many other arguments to get itself a good image. I'm just happy that somebody in the industry decided it needed to advertise and do public relations.

This is an effort to revive "Our Friend the Atom" and clearly as misinformed.
