Here's a thread with some thoughts on persuasion for #NuclearTwitter based on a real part of my life right now.

I have a new friend in my circle. She is, I'm pretty confident, dyed-in-the-wool anti-nuclear. She's also funny, lovely, we share taste in music and broader values.
She knows about what I do on what topic. She hasn't raised it. Nor have I. She's coming for dinner with others next week. What should I do? She's passionate about the environment, care of land, climate change etc... 🤔
Shall I: 1/ raise nuclear at first+every opportunity; make it clear that her 'values' as fluff unless she supports nuclear; call her an idiot or a liar if she raises a talking point that is incorrect; post-party, keep this up via every available channel. It's an option.

Okay #NuclearTwitter, I feel like we've been fighting more than we've been collaborating lately, and that needs to change, so I want to do a quick thread on choosing targets for engagement and how it can be really transformative for getting the outcomes you want
So the first step is defining your goal: the more specific you can be the better. Let's say you want to get a nuclear-inclusive clean energy standard passed in your town. That would be a very worthy goal, right?!
So now that you know what you want to achieve, you've got some major research to do. Is there any current legislation on climate or energy? Are there state level rules that could impact the effort? What is the process for introducing and passing legislation at the local level?
