TODAY. Shouldn’t we all get out of nuclear, before the next nuclear failure (whether it be financial, security, accident, pollution ………)?
Today the global military-industrial-political-corporate -media is awash with its sorrow and regret, and recriminations against Germany’s action in shutting down nuclear power.
However, I thought that CNN gave the whole story a pretty fair coverage, concluding with:
“There will be a moment of decision as to whether nuclear really has a future”
Otherwise, the main media felt obligated to express concerns of the nuclear lobby – that Germany is in the thrall of the evil Green Party, that nuclear can save the climate, that renewable industries can’t really succeed, that the public demands that nuclear stations stay open.
Meanwhile the G7 countries are now going to discuss “the essential contribution” of nuclear energy to achieving climate and energy security!!
All this going on as the IAEA’s nuclear security chief warns that ‘we are living on borrowed time’ after two landmine explosions near Europe’s largest atomic power station in Ukraine.
Just who is telling the truth, and who is lying about nuclear power?
Is nuclear power really clean as the industry claims?
really effective against climate change?
really affordable? really a good investment?
really has no problem to worry about with its radioactive wastes.
really welcomed by the public?
The final shutdown of Germany’s nuclear power has led CNN to ask that remarkable question – “whether nuclear really has a future”
