Lee Bressler argues on his blog, The Lee Show:
- “Producers of fossil fuels want to undermine nuclear energy, so they funded large groups of ‘green’ protesters. “
- “These protesters were useful idiots who staged protests and political activism to try to have nuclear plants shut down, block new plants from being built, and advocate for a future without nuclear energy.”
If that is the case, it is another example of the “bootleggers and Baptists” coalitions identified by economist Bruce Yandle.
