9 high-profile champions of nuclear power: Who's on board?
If any one has any doubts about the nuclear energy and cancer, see the recent Sundance film: the "Atomic States of America."
Where was the peer reviewed science to backup the crazy thesis that the movie tried to protray. Maybe this is why there was absulutly no buzz about this movie.
Since when has an absence of peer review prevented production and airing of "documentaries"?
All you do is list a expert consultant in the generic; hardly matters if he even exists!
Angela Merkel of Germany did not change her mind ,but rather the population of Germany demanded the change. Around the world, 2/3 of the people want an end to nuclear power. In Japan 3/4 of the population wants nuclear power removed.
Oh please, the meltdown in japan has shown what fearmongering about 'catastrophic consequences' really is: just fearmongering. No-one has died as a direct result of Fukushima - that's amazing for an industrial accident.
Most nuclear cheerleaders have no concern for reality, or accountability. They make the same claims regardless of what happens.
Nuclear energy is neither safe nor clean. The threat of a nuclear accident at one of our own aging nuclear facilities is all too real, and the consequences would be unimaginably catastrophic.
Nuclear energy is green, safe, and clean. The tsunami in Japan showed us how fragile life really is. Why would we want to destroy the planet with dirty CO2? Makes no sense to have the answer then reject it because people have the wrong idea of low low doses of radiation. A new UC Berkeley study will turn LNT on its ear, clearing the way for better understanding of the natural world, which naturally contains radiation
There are no CO2 concerns with wind, solar, geothermal, tidal, wave, and other systems. Both nuclear power and coal need to be replaced.
So the mining of toxic rare earth metals for batteries and magnets for renewables is good for the planet? Not to mention that renewables cannot function without fossil fuel back-ups, ultimately making us more dependent on the thing we are trying to stop using...renewables simply aren't up for the job. Nuclear is our best choice (there is no perfect solution) which is what all of these very smart, high profile folks have realized.
This is nothing but a blatant add for Southern Company and nuclear energy. Shame on Huff Post. They are trying to gain ground for nuclear energy since Fukushima. What as crock. The new plants cause "less" cancer. The implication is that they still cause cancer. Shame. You want your children to live in these areas?
