    Switzerland deciding to abandon nuclear energy, perhaps you ought to forward The Oil Drum to their Governments, given that they have made the decision to cease using nuclear energy and to instead embrace renewables.

    Maybe you can personally persuade Merkel to go in a "better direction" so to speak, since you seem a bit alarmed by this development.

    When sending, be sure to forward to Switzerland as well so that this technologically backward nation is sure to get the memo that renewables are problematic and this is well documented and well supported by peak oil believers.

    Yes, this sounds like a promising political action that will benefit the whole world.

    I feel if you don't contact these nations, you're in dereliction of duties as an advocate for human and environmental rights both. Let us not be lead down the lily path by anti-nuclear, pro-renewable hucksters and charletans operating through the clear intellectual flaws of the technophobic, quasi-Luddite nations of Germany and Switzerland. Seriously. Do they even really deserve EU status?

      As The Oil Drum is made up mostly of anti-nuclear types, and it's pretty heavily European in orientation, I have no doubt their serious study is being forwarded to them.

      I don't believe you or many of them are 'hucksters' at all.  I feel they are simply, and fatally, wrong.

      Mahahali, you ought read this. Especially the freewheeling debate on the subject of What price of Indian independence? Greenpeace under the spotlight. Both are important to get other points of view.

      I regularly read Jerome de Paris. He's a major European investor in wind power and the most articulate defender of it that I've read anywhere. Because of his intelligence, He's willing to debate out the issues with facts and figures. He also posts here on occasion. The problem for most anti-nukes is they don't read all the many faceted sides of the debate. You really ought to, especially because of your own personal experiences.
