From Cairo to London: People Power
"The power of, and results possible through peaceful protest reported from around the world seemed to galvanise the UK public in such a way that an all-encompassing demonstration which took place this past weekend (March 26th) in London attracted half a million people." - Amy Freeborn

Now's not the time to battle phantom reactors
Sure, let’s make the most of the renewed attention and reawakened concerns about nukes. But in doing so, let’s not spend too much energy attacking phantom reactors. I'd rather leapfrog over any questions of hypothetical reactors to confront the reality of uranium mining. I don't know that we can do anything about earthquakes and tsunami, but we have a responsibility, and an opportunity, to act now to avoid the risk of another Fukushima.

My only hope is that this Full Moon at Perigee doesn't add the emotional push that causes someone who shouldn't to do something stupid. If you've seen lots of people do lots of peculiar things in bright moonlight, you begin to wonder what people in already-intense situations might do if given an extra dose of what's in the moonbeams.

Who do you trust – a politician or a scientist?
During a time of war a leader who wanted to appease the enemy would be called a traitor. It is about time we asked who is paying these people when the scientific evidence is so overwhelming. Whose interests are they supporting?

The rattle of a simple man
I have a vision for the Arabs:.One people, one nation,one country encompassing the middle east and north Africa. As such it would right many wrongs, provide equity, dilute extremism, and usher in a new world order.
