    Guys this is an initiative worth following, Kyle is making a massive effort to create awareness to problems posed to the enviroment, (in this clip the new nuclear plant proposed for the Eastern Cape) its not about surfing only and he is acting on all our behalves using surfing as a platform to reach people.

    Please support and see how you can assist...

    If you dont want to do it for yourself, do it for your children....

    watch this vid clip

    Nice clip, pretty Foster Gamble had to spoil it. "Free energy", my black a$$. What a lot of fairly sane people are forgetting when they compare Thyspunt to Fukushima, is that one is built in the most earthquake intense areas on the planet and the other is planned for one of the safest.

    agreed that the comparision is not totally correct but there is a significant difference in the mentality of the Japanese vs the South Africand that will most likley run these plants, our water services are testemony to that, so can you imagine the catastrophy if we have neglegent high paid officials working there?

    not only that, what about the waste produced?? i think tourism would initially take a knock but then the worry would fade out..

    the main point here is that when there are other alternitives with less (not none but less) impact on the enviroment, why are we still wanting to go nuclear, and to top it off the EIA (enviromental impact assessment) has ruled the proposed site the most unsuitable of the 3 proposed????

    Why are they still hell bent on biolding on that site? even after it was suggested not to?????

    something is not right here...

    That we shall never know. Problem is that NO-ONE wants the thing on their doorstep. Thuyspunt, although archaeologically/biologically/.... significant. The lack of an immediate permanent population trumps all. Direct living human interaction trumps all.....
