I can only speak for myself. I post on the topic because the topic of global warming has been wrapped up into the topic of nuclear energy - most prominently by nuclear energy advocacy groups. As I mentioned earlier, there are plenty of good reasons to stop burning fossil fuels, just as there are plenty of good reasons to use nuclear energy. If the most prominent argument in either the climate change OR the nuclear energy debate ends up being based more on politics than on science - and if the science turns out to be wrong - then all of the other reasons might fall as well, due only to their association with a discredited idea.
To put the last piece in place - a lot of RSTs, HPs, and nuclear engineers have an obvious stake in whether or not we build more nuclear reactors or just start tearing down those that we have. That alone should make it a relevant topic for this list-server.

If I had said I don't know why this site continues to "post" submissions rather than "receive"; you would have a point with your censorship statement. I questioned the motivation of the submitters. If it were only a few climate change submittals, I would welcome the insight, but after so many, I question the motivation. http://www.ans.org/pi/ps/docs/ps44.pdf
