Dave Erickson is a strong advocate of measures to protect the climate and blogs at Re/Action on Climate Protection. Here is the header for his blog:
Welcome to the Climate Protection blog, created and guided by Dave Erickson. This is not the official voice of the Climate Protection Campaign. Dave invites all viewpoints about the response to the climate crisis, and may himself embrace controversial views from time to time. None of the viewpoints or ideas expressed herein represent the views or opinions of the Climate Protection Campaign, its board, donors or sponsors.
In the past few weeks, he has posted several posts worth discussing regarding his opinions about the ability of various kinds of energy sources to reduce the impact of burning coal, gas, and oil on the health of the climate. He tends to like windmills, tolerates existing energy sources, and believes that energy conservation should take precedence over all other forms of investment in new energy sources.
As you might expect, I have posted a few comments on his blog providing my viewpoints and a few facts to back those opinions up. Dave Bradish has also engaged in similar activities and challenged some of Dave Erickson’s assumptions and assertions. Both of us have suggested that nuclear power needs to be included in any discussion of power generation if you want to talk about ways to reduce emissions – since zero is far better than any other number in this particular technical area.
Apparently Dave Erickson has tired of the discussion and posted a dismissal of the topic with an entry in his blog titled Last Word on Nuclear.
Of course, Dave is well within his rights as a publisher to talk about whatever topics he desires, and he is perfectly free to take measures to delete my comments from his blog. Of course, I also have freedoms, a soapbox and plenty of ammunition for the debate. You can be assured that this is not MY last word with regard to the ability of atomic fission to make a serious contribution to a cleaner atmosphere with less possibility for dramatic, human caused climate change.
