I have been searching in vain for information that the public can easily digest and which can be used by politicians to support nuclear energy. The resistance to nuclear energy is partly the result of the failure to adequately inform the public, a failure which should be corrected ASAP.
As we know, political campaigns consist mainly of sound and visual bites, typically of no more than 15 seconds. Why aren't such bites available to support nuclear energy?
To start, what I have in mind is a simple chart showing how much concrete, steal, and land are required for a 1 MW nuclear plant, a 1 MW wind farm, and a 1 MW solar installation. Such a chart, when displayed on a TV screen, could be understood in only a few seconds and would make the disparity immediately obvious.
Why isn't such a chart on the bravenewclimate website, or if it is, why is it so difficult to find?
Can anyone provide the information so that I can make a chart myself and send it to the New Mexico politicians who are running for office? I have spend hours searching for this information and have not found it.

fre- we agree with you that we need to get across to the general public, in an easily digestible way, the true facts about nuclear power and radiation. To that end a new website "KnowMoreFearLess is being developed as an offshoot ofBNC. Any suggestions, input will be appreciated. Direct link to the graphs
