"Let's face it, we don't want safe plants -- we want the ones 
being planned to be blocked and the ones operating shut down."

"Thanks to intervenors, nuclear is safer, also much more expen-
sive!"                                               Bill Jordan,

"Electricity demand forecasting can be used as an effective 
roadblock to nuclear power."                         Ruth Kaplan

"[The antinukes] would succeed in stopping nuclear power through 
harassment tactics that would delay nuclear plants, escalate 
their costs and make them uneconomical to build."
                 Barry Commoner, Wall Street Journal, 2 May 1983

"The [ideal] energy will be produced and disseminated through 
small-scale technology... We simply would have got rid of most of 
the extra high voltage wires strung around the country; closed up 
the coal mines, mined oil and gas fields, taken down oil 
refineries and much of the petro-chemical establishment.''

for Social Reconstruction (see R.J. Isaacs, "Games Antinukes 
Play," Amer. Spect., Nov. 1985 -- a fundamental article for 
pro-nuclear activists).
