Just something interesting that a subscriber brought to my attention. The Age newspaper, probably the least friendly in the land to nuclear, is running a program called “The Climate Agenda” to let readers steer the coverage of climate change issues a bit.
Interesting idea. Interesting also to note that the third most voted for question is, basically, why not nuclear? I’d ask the question slightly differently than Russel Hamstead has but it is more than good enough. If you have a chance, it might be worth paying a visit and adding a vote to this question. Warning though: steer clear of the comments thread, you could be there a looooong time.
It would be nice to see this idea count for something… predictably it is being spammed by deniers. In general The Age has taken seriously its editorial responsibility in the representation of the climate change science, so it will be interesting to see what they do with that particular can of worms they have now opened by turning it over to the public to direct them.
Any way, for the sake of five minutes it is just a little more pressure we might add to the issue.
