Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Any thoughts on Edward's admittedly slightly tin-foil-hat thoughts?

You mean, in his previous post, suggesting that it's a plot by the global nuclear industry?


(Note however that Gazprom has set a foot in the nuclear industry by taking the control of one of the civil nuclear industrial entities inside Russia, not sure which one right now.)

I may not be around for a while, I actually have some work to do now...

Well, to be fair, he was noting how convenient it was for the nuclear industry, not suggesting that it was a plot.

The pro-nuclear lobby is currently pushing very hard through Europe; in UK the debate has been more or less officially reopened a few months ago (and at the moment BBC coverage is quite indulgent, on the verge of being partisan), and it even resurfaced in Italy, as it happens every time the oil prices go up (this time with a peak-oil twist). The awful truth is that nuclear looks like a good solution to Kyoto-induced constraints and oncoming oil scarcity.

So I would excuse "conspiracy-theorist" reactions, they are just picking up the general feeling that the pro-nuclear lobby might have a chance in the next couple of years.
