Well done on the nomination Barry. I’m generally a lurker, and I post under different pseudonyms on various forums, but I find BNC to be an incredibly useful resource that has massively shifted my thinking on sustainability and energy.
I was once a 100% renewables guy (after spending a few sad years as a Olduvai/peakist doomer), but now I’m strongly behind your push for pragmatism, and I see nuclear energy, both Gen III and Gen IV, as a major part of this. Perhaps THE major part (I don’t know), but it must be able to compete on a level playing field. Peter Lang taught me that :)
Anyway, enough from me, I’ve registered my vote for you over at The Big Blog Theory website, and I hope all the other regular readers of BNC, both lurkers and regular commenters, also do. Let’s give BNC the recognition it truly deserves, and give Prof Brook a chance to sell his wares in Canberra on National Science week!
Rapid Rabbit, I voted too and I expect just about everone else has too.
Thank you for that encouragement. I only wish we could get the point through to the politicians and the NGOs that are driving bad policy.
Perhaps EclipseNow can find a way to communicate this critical point to the masses and the pollies.
Thanks RR, nice to have your comment/support.
I see that voting ends 23 July.
Good luck Barry – you deserve to win not least because you give up so much of your own time to produce this most worthy and stimulating blog – of course you have my vote:)
Today is the last day of voting, so if you haven’t got your vote registered yet, go and do it now!
