Ralph Nader on Democracy Now 3/18/2011 - Nuclear Plants are Technological Insanity
The government and the industry will defend nuclear power in the U.S. until the last mutation.
Why are we playing Russian roulette with the American people for nuclear plants whose principle objective is simply to boil water and produce steam?
Phone White House comment number 202-456-1111 and demand public hearings in every area where there is a nuclear plant so people can see what the hazards are; what the risks are; how farcical the evacuation plans are (duck and cover); how costly nuclear power is.
no new licenses; shut down aging plants and earthquake risk ones; phase out entire industry; we're going to be left with radioactive waste for hundreds of thousands of years with no permanent repository.
