Heavy Voting in "The Economist" Nuclear Debate NOW!!!!

April 14th, 2011

Dear Readers,

Okay, this is urgent. The pro-nuclear industry is doing everything THEY can to "stack the deck" in the voting at THE ECONOMIST.

Shouldn't we do the same?

Shown below is the World Nuclear Association's letter, which JUST ARRIVED (April 1th, 2011, 9:55 AM PST)

P.S. Pay attention to the last line of the letter below and be sure to vote correctly to represent "our" point of view! Oh yeah, and obviously, don't bother reading the "debate", that ended March 11th, 2011 -- and I'm sure Mr. Cloke (his real name, I presume) doesn't expect you too, either. Perhaps The Economist does. Perhaps I will.

Dear colleagues

On Tuesday I wrote to inform you that "The Economist" is conducting an online debate on the future of nuclear power, to be found at:

The debate is now in the final hours, and it appears that last-minute voting is quite heavy.

WNA's Ian Hore-Lacy has presented the pro-nuclear case, and the anti-nuclear case has been presented by Tom Burke, formerly of Friends of the Earth.

Guest commentators have been Mark Lynas supporting nuclear energy and Amory Lovins opposing it.

There have also been several hundreds of recorded comments on the motion that "This house believes that the world would be better off without nuclear power."

If you haven't voted yet, please consider doing so. The anti-nuclear vote is for the motion, and the pro-nuclear vote is against the motion.

WNA Director of Administration and Finance
