    Hi there

    I am a BA student with Massey University and currently writing an assignment about nuclear power as a possible carbon-neutral option for replacing coal/oil/gas power plants in a world looking at ways of reducing emissions that contribute towards climate change. Controversial I know but rest assured – nuclear power scares the living daylights out of me and I would never in my wildest dreams recommend such a thing. Was wondering if someone could let me know what Generation Zero’s position is towards nuclear power?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    Mark Kitchingman
