  1. Nuclear energy is not and has never been safe. It is totally counterproductive. When the plants age, the cost of dismantling them is enormous and more costly than any funds for energy that they might have saved. A disaster or accident is not reversible and the filthiest toxins on earth are released into the atmosphere where so much other pollution from coal and oil is also released as if our earth’s atmosphere were a garbage dump for poisons. My deceased husband, a PhD chemist from Yale used to measure the leakage from nuclear plants. They have ALWAYS lied about the amount of leakage which is almost always more than is admitted and allowable. There is no safety whatsoever in this costly industry and nuclear industrialists lobby like demons from Hell to make us think otherwise. Unfortunately, President Obama who is good on many issues, is not good on this one as he was greatly funded in his presidential campaign by nuclear energy industrialists. One out of two Americans contracts some form of cancer in their life time, greatly due, my chemist husband believed, from the leakage of nuclear plants and their waste into water and earth everywhere. Helen Caldicott and The Green Party have always been correct about the filthy, counterproductive nuclear energy industry.
