Can I suggest you approach Tony for FoE's reaction and thoughts on:
1. James Lovelock's view that we are past the point of no return on global
warming and in particular,
2. his view that nulcear is the only alternative energy source to fossil
fuels we have to hand that is (relatively) safe and available.
Isn't it time for FoE to junk their historical foundation that gives them a
modern day mental block on this issue, to get real on this issue or
recognise that they undermine their own credibility in their role of raising
environmental awareness, a job they otherwise do well?
By all means, let us use the small input from renewables sensibly, but only
one immediately available source does not cause global warming, and that is
nuclear energy. . . . Nuclear energy from its start in 1952 has proved to be
the safest of all energy sources . . . We have no time to experiment with
visionary energy sources; civilization is in imminent danger and has to use
nuclearthe one safe, available, energy sourcenow or suffer the pain soon
to be inflicted by our outraged planet.
James Lovelock, leading environmentalist, creator of the Gaia theory
PS I hope you don't mind but I have also sent you a voting opinion from a
democratic evolution service, www.vote-4-me.com, that I'm involved with. Let
me know your thoughts if you get a chance. Good luck with your interview.
