Public Poll: Nuclear Advocates Needed

There is an unofficial poll being conducted by The Los Angeles Times regarding the future of San Onofre Nuclear Generation Station. If you support the continued operation of San Onofre nuclear plant, please click here, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and vote to: "Reopen them and seek a new license to keep them running until 2042."

Here’s a look at the poll:

Though the poll is unofficial, these polls can still influence readers, so your participation is greatly appreciated.
 
Please note that polls can be taken down at the newspaper's discretion so please vote today, and feel free to share this link with family and friends that support San Onofre.

Thank you for taking the time to show your support for nuclear power.

I know it's wearisome to hear, but had the nuclear industry maintained a steady public nuclear education program and PSAs through the decades, it could've helped promote acceptance of nuclear plants even though TMI's P.R. disaster, and now with the media and anti-nukers smelling blood in the water vis-a-via Fukushima (whose P.R. effect could've been mitigated by more active air support here despite Jackzo), they're going to smear as much fact and truth as possible to finally hammer the nails in. You'd think the the nuclear "industry"/unions would've learned a lesson by now, yet the airwaves are crammed with Oil and Gas commercials with only crickets cheerleading the nuclear side; nuclear power conferences still avoid the issue of dealing with and de-FUD'ing anti-nuclear activists who are harvesting greater numbers and voters every day with the assistance of the media; and most of the pro-nuclear public education heavy-lifting is done by unassisted grass-roots advocacy groups valiantly surging against the tsunami of FUD and hysteria. So, yea, we should not be surprised by the result of this poll. The nuclear industry needs to take a lesson from the computing world regards to public acceptance and education: garbage-in garbage-out.

I went to the poll on Wednesday the 20th at 5:40 pm Pacific time and found it still available. The vote is running nicely in favor of keeping the plant open past 2022. Keep voting!
