I believe I may have a topic suitable for your show. Certainly, it is a topic for which many people need to have their brains rewired. I am referring to the abysmal ignorance of the general public in relation to nuclear power For decades the public has been fed exaggeration and half-truth on this subject, which has been reinforced by a news media far more interested in sensationalism than the simple reporting of facts. How many people are aware that in the entire history of nuclear power in the USA and western world no member of the public has ever been injured, let a alone killed by any effect from this energy source? At the same time thousands suffer premature death each year from the burning of coal to produce our electrical energy. Much rubbish is spread on the subject of alternate sources to replace the devastating coal plants, but nuclear energy, which can be shown to be the safest and most environmentally friendly source, is the last to be considered. A visitor from another planet would regard our energy policy as insane. I can discuss all aspects of this issue, having done so on numerous occasions. The following should provide information on my background:  www.bit.ly/lVMQ2S
