If There Is a Pro-Fossil-Fuel Conspiracy
The left side of the political spectrum is full of conspiracy theories claiming that the “global-warming deniers” are carrying out the agenda of fossil-fuel interests. If that's the case, you would expect to find lots of anti-nuclear memes on the right side of the spectrum but they seem to be rare there. We wingnuts are divided between those of us in favor of nukes and those of us who ignore the nukes.
The only exceptions are the memes of “nuclear energy would be nice but it's politically impossible in the United States” and “if there is even one serious accidents, no more nukes will be built.” The only real data for the first amounts to the fact that the experts are told the people are against nukes and the people are told the experts are against nukes. No data is cited for the second and it is contrary to actual experience with other technologies. Maybe we should try tracing those memes and find out where they came from and how much the originators were paid by OPEC.
