25 prominent South Australians sign up to Ben Heard’s Bright New Nuclear Bullshit

12 Dec 16 Australian nuclear lobbyists have had remarkable success in making themselves famous internationally, which is probably their main aim. . Barry Brook set this off, with a thin veil of environmentalism covering his dedication to the nuclear industry, in Brave New Climate. He got a heap of well-meaning environmentalists to sign up to a pro nuclear letter.

He’s got 25 important people to sign up to a pro nuclear campaign for South Australia.  As with Brook’s disciples, some of these people seem quite altruistic and disconnected with the nuclear and mining industries.

  1. Christina-Thank God for your input.
    I was stunned to see this fool Ben Heard set himself up as minister for Ipropaganda.I have 50 years experience
    On construction sites and factories and I recognized immediately that Ben is the archtypical individual that is always responsible for “well organized fuckups”
    He is all resume no common sense.
    The answer to 99.9% of questions to Ben Heard is money.Who is paying this bastard?
