Some other members of EFN :
Quote: "I am a Green and I entreat my friends in the movement to drop their wrongheaded objection to nuclear energy (...) We have no time to experiment with visionary energy sources; civilisation is in imminent danger and has to use nuclear -- the one safe, available, energy source -- now or suffer the pain soon to be inflicted by our outraged planet."
