Matthew Meyer & DJ LeClear present on behalf of at conference #11 held in ABQ on 2022-11-13. This presentation is a critique of the “Information Deficit Model” where we all typically assume there’s a missing piece of information someone opposed to nuclear power is lacking, and once they’re informed the anti-nuke will flip sides and become an ally.
