Is It Nuclear or Just Unclear?

I received a reply from Greenpeace about my proposal. Do they want to see my figures or take up my mad cap plan? Well not exactly. What they said was,

Dear Chris

Thank you for your email and interest in the issue.

Greenpeace has been campaigning on this for along time and one of our simplest arguments, like yours, has been that it would be far cheaper, even if you were to believe the nuclear industry’s extremely optimistic financial costs, to employ other greener/cleaner means of meeting our energy needs. This argument has fallen on deaf ears as Blair’s government have been hell bent on new nuclear, even though it has been proven by themselves to be the wrong answer for the UK.

Greenpeace is working very hard to get the government to take on Decentralised Energy which negates the need for new nuclear and will ensure that we meet our climate and energy needs at far less cost. For more information on this:……….

Looks like a standard letter to me. Perhaps St. Jude was right with her comment,

“Please don't hold your breath waiting for everyone to get back to you. They like to talk, but very rarely do they like to listen.”

I’m still waiting for Friends of the Earth to get back to me. Maybe they will be more positive. No breath holding, I promise.
