  •  Do people still use that risable false choice (5+ / 0-)

    scenario?

    Dude, you need at least 3 times more nuclear reactors (and probably more like 5 or 7 times) than we have right now to make a difference on global warming and nobody in their right mind who is honest would say they could possibly be funded. Or that the spent fuel generated would not be a problem in itself.

    Will we soon see claims that 40% thyroid troubles in Fukushima's children is not really a health issue, and can't be tied to radiation anyway?

    So so so tired, these silly, false, and misleading arguments of the nuke cult. The business is dead, and it should have never seen the light of day in the first place.


    The Internet is just the tail of the Corporate Media dog.

      Notice how Norm has nothing to say about the failures going on at Fukushima that someone is going to have to deal with.

      Instead he is throwing out anything he can think of to get people talking about anything else. This is a rather typical nuclear PR tactic.

      The reality is that there are pipes in an accelerated decay that are still needed if nothing else to keep running water to wherever the fuel did end up. The spent fuel pool risks continue to go up the longer they delay actually doing something about the fragile conditions at the plant.

      Fukushima is already a huge mess, we need to make sure it doesn't become even more difficult.
