Administered a questionnaire to 47 participants attending a workshop on nuclear energy shortly after publication of a report on a proposed nuclear fuel reprocessing plant. Pro-nuclear Ss appeared to place emphasis on the economic benefits of nuclear energy, while anti-nuclear Ss appeared more concerned with social and political risks, and regarded alternative energy sources as more viable. It is concluded that an analysis of such attitudinal differences requires a consideration not only of differences in beliefs, but also of differences in belief salience.
