An input of which there appeared to be no dearth. I found this transcript to be fascinating -- the many, many angles from which one can approach "no, duh, nuclear energy IS a really stupid idea, we knew it was going to be, and now we know that we don't even know now exactly how bad an idea it will have turned out to have been, but we nonetheless seem to have to experience it being this very very stupid bad of an idea first hand. We thought we would share some of our experiences, since you seem to not be doing anything important at the moment, like dismantling the infrastructure of nuclear power or educating citizens about the effects of radiation, or renewing your abandoned duty to protect the children -- the adults of tomorrow -- from the slow deaths caused by your short sighted self-sabotaging indifference, opportunism, and greed."

UPDATE: Adobe Acrobat ™ reads it just fine. I retract any implications I may be making below. I leave them here for academic purposes, because I still resent having to have one corporation's software.... but am sure the AEC meant me no harm... With apologies. Sigh.
