Nuclear Power Is Not The Answer: To Global Warming or Anything Else

Nuclear Power Is Not The Answer: To Global Warming or Anything Else by Dr. Helen Caldicott, The New Press, 2006

* Nuclear power is not carbon neutral – it uses vast amounts of fossil-fuels in uranium mining, milling, processing and construction and transport activities.

* Nuclear power kills Native Americans & poisons their water and food.
Seventy percent of uranium in the US lies under native land. We never hear of the horrors visited on Native Americans by the nuclear industry because killing and poisoning Indians is not news.

* Nuclear power needs vast public subsidies – it’s so costly it can’t compete
in a free market – the industry has asked congress for $50 billion in loan guarantees for new plants.

* Nuclear accident insurance is subsidized by tax dollars. The industry insurance risks are so costly congress has passed some of the liability to taxpayers. Poor nuclear power, the welfare recipient.

  1. […] the nuclear front.  I stumbled upon a pair of poets plugging Caldicott’s book at their blog, On the Wilder Side.  Nice to see other poets in the nuclear-free […]

  2. The development of nuclear power is already having an impact on many Native Americans via the mining of uranium. As quoted, 70% of uranium is on Native lands. This is not a green solution!

  3. Solar is the way to go – no doubt. There is a ground floor movement to take solar to the masses by a company called Citizenre? They are trying market solar with an approach similar to satellite TV, cellular telephones, and alarm systems. That is to provide the customer a complete solar system with no upfront charges and make money from a service contract. In this case the service contract would be a rent agreement. They intend to put a complete solar system on clients home. When the system produces electricity, it will lower the bill from the current utility provider. In most cases the savings from the lower bill will more than cover the rent fee that the company intends to charge. The company currently has no product available but intends to deploy in the middle of 2008. They are currently taking reservations and have over 26,000 takers so far. I have written several articles on this company in my blog and even have a couple of videos that I have recorded at http://www.solarjoules.com. Feel free to take a look. I welcome comments. As in any start up business, a chance exists that they may never get off the ground and fulfill any preorders, but if this is the case – the potential client has not lost anything. If you cannot afford the upfront cost of solar today, this may turn out to be a great alternative.
    This solution would mean that we could produce at least a little less pollution and would be a great step.
