  1. Who is this Called-a-clot person, anyway?

  2. blogstrop - if your question isn’t rhetorical, she’s the resident whining harridan who has been screeching nuclear catastrophe for over 20 years.

    Put another way - whenever ‘nuclear energy’ is in the news, she’s on the ABC’s speed dial for an interview to trot out the same old lies and smears as you’ll find at any meeting of the “Green Left’.

    In fact - what is a collective noun for this bunch of stupid, whining lefty slags:

    Helen Caulifower
    Geerms Greer
    Margot Whitless

  4. Well, if any of…
    Helen Caulifower
    Geerms Greer
    Margot Whitless…
    did grow up age near Aussie reactor sites, maybe there is something to it even if it hasn’t been studied enough yet to see if there is a direct causal relationship. BTW, is Berkeley home to a reactor too?

  6. She’s the one who predicted that nuclear war would be “a mathematical certainty” if Ronald Reagan were re-elected President in 1984.

  7. Debunk her all you want. It’s still a great title.

    Also a good name for a punk band.

  8. C’mon, give the old lady a break.  At least she’s not walking down the street at rush hour with her panties on her head.

    Er… she’s not, is she?

  9. #4, andycanuck - BTW, is Berkeley home to a reactor too?

    Well, the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory is just up the hill from the Berkeley campus, but I’m not sure if they store any significant amount of nuclear materials there.  Actually, the stuff emanating from the classrooms is already toxic enough.

  10. She retired to a backblock years ago, but then Michael Moore made a heap of new money with his lies, so…
