WARNING: Watch Out for Those Phoney Letters to the Editor Supporting Nukes. By Geniusofdespair
The Clean and Safe Energy Coalition is a public relations campaign for new reactors. How can a public relations campaign have members? Only in crazy land Florida.
CASEnergy Coaltion was started in 2006, funded by the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) industry group, and headed by former Bush Environmental Protection Agency administrator Christine Todd Whitman and former Greenpeace activist Patrick Moore. I wrote about this greenwash group in 2013.
Luz Weinberg, an ineffective former Aventura Commissioner wrote a letter today for them. Actually, they probably wrote it for her and she signed it as a "Member". Shame on you Luz Weinberg! Shame on you.
Kevin Doyle wrote a similar letter in the Sun Sentinel for Consumer Energy Alliance. Their website says: "CEA maintains several campaigns to engage voters on public policy that seeks to increase domestic energy production of all kinds" (except solar).
EDUCATE YOURSELF! Always looks up the group writing letters. They always have nice sounding names. FPL is all upset by their bad press and I suppose is enlisting these groups and their shills to clean up their image.
On a bad note: The evil Florida Cabinet just approved aquifer water for Turkey Point's cooling canals.
