Radical environmentalists may be having regrets over their campaign to kill nuclear energy.
After decades of demonizing nuclear power, some environmental groups are rethinking their opposition to nuclear power.
Unfortunately, they may be too late in the United States and Germany, and possibly France.
Germany is on the path to shutting down all its nuclear power plants by 2020.
In the United States, several plants are on the verge of being shut down, and it’s clear all existing nuclear power plants will be shut down over the next 80 years as they fail to get their operating licenses renewed, and that no more new nuclear plants, other than the four being built now, will be built.
Radical environmentalists killed the coal industry in the United States, while ignoring and campaigning against the only method for generating base-load electricity that doesn’t emit CO2 … nuclear power.
The Wall Street Journal recently reported that environmental groups were rethinking their opposition to nuclear power. The Sierra Club is, according to the article, “debating whether to halt its longtime position in support of shuttering all existing nuclear-power plants earlier than required by their federal operating licenses.”
How can they now say nuclear power is safe, when for decades they have been warning people against the threat of radiation and the China syndrome?
Suddenly, there is no threat from radiation?
Suddenly, there is no threat of the China syndrome?
Actually, the China syndrome was a creature of radical environmentalists’ imagination, so as to scare people from using nuclear power. The China syndrome could not happen, but it had the appeal of being able to scare people into thinking thousands, if not millions would be harmed by radiation. See Destruction of America’s Nuclear Industry.
Were the radical environmental groups lying then?
Or are they conveniently changing their stripes now?
Was nuclear power dangerous last year, and for the last 70 years? So why isn’t it dangerous now?
The perfidy of radical environmental groups is appalling.
How can they be trusted?
They have misrepresented the dangers from radiation. They have misrepresented the dangers from nuclear power plants. They have hastened and promoted the closure of existing nuclear power plants.
Now … they want to save nuclear power?
What else have they been lying about?
