and elsewhere do depend on coal plants for a considerable

Most of the people I know from college are antinuke. My geological
graduate school friends
are usually antinuke, and think I work at Nuke plants. They

Mr. Helbig. Debate them at the proper time and place --- argue with
their leaders, if
possible. Their belief system is ingrained --- their mind is
already made up about nuclear power.
If you do argue or discuss the matter with these people, please be
civilized, if possible. Most of
these people are power company customers. The average man on the
street may be
neutral on Nuclear matters.
Mr. Helbig, try to be moderate in your views. You are pretty
far to the right. I try to be moderate, but am to the right
also. The environmental colleges and liberal college faculty are pretty far to

Don't go outside tonight, Mr. Helbig. You may find the local
antiNuke examining your
garbage. They probably go through your US Mail before you receive
