Are "Friends of the "Earth" starting to wise up ?
Due to a clash of dates yesterday I was unable to attend a conference for Conservative candidates - I thought it was even more important to attend the "Save Our Services" march to defend local hospitals in West Cumbria.
However, I am intrigued to learn from the "Conservative Home" website that Friends of the Earth may at long last be softening their opposition to Nuclear Power.
According to the Conservative Home report on the conference,
"Tony Juniper of Friends of the Earth admitted that nuclear power was an option even if it wasn't FotE's favoured option."
This comes a few months after the FoE demonstration at the Drax coal fires power station which is of course Britain's largest emitter of carbon into the atmosphere.
It is beginning to look like the debate on this complex subject is going to become more grown-up and less simplistic, which has to be welcome.
