Globalization’s “efficiency’ is nothing but a cross-your-fingers fantasy.
The FDA is disingenuous in its attempt to compare the radiation from a major nuclear accident to radiation exposures in everyday life.
In this crisis Japan’s power generation, energy security, and energy plans have taken perhaps the most profound and protracted blow.
Whether you support nuclear power or not, subsidizing and thereby artificially lessening the nuclear power industry’s financial risks is just plain fiscally irresponsible.
There’s no safe level of radiation exposure.
Obama’s preparing for many generations of nukes.
The government should finally address the dangers posed by unsafe storage practices for spent fuel.

It could turn into the gift that keeps on giving for the nuclear energy industry and its advocates.
A drained spent fuel pool in the U.S. could lead to a catastrophic fire that would result in long-term land contamination substantially worse than what the Chernobyl accident unleashed.
It’s time for a nuclear energy time-out.
We were just about to start getting back into the nuclear energy business ourselves after refraining from building any new nuclear reactors for decades.
Peter Bradford, Robert Alvarez, Erich Pica, and Dr. Jeffrey Patterson addressed Japan’s nuclear emergency with the media.
Fukushima has been but a minor inconvenience to nuclear energy advocates.
