Mainstream media needs to stop regurgitating nuclear spin about climate change

Plenty of carbon used in nuclear energy April 14 https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/plenty-of-carbon-used-in-nuclear-energy/2017/04/14/055e9262-1e1e-11e7-bb59-a74ccaf1d02f_story.html?utm_term=.a0219255a149 Paki Wieland

The April 2 editorial “Nuclear energy in peril” referred to nuclear energy as carbon-free. It is not carbon-free.If we look at nuclear power in whole, from the uranium mining to the dismantling of nuclear power plants, there is an extraordinary use of energy, from the initial devastation of the environment where the uranium is mined to the costly cleanup.

The impact on the environment continues through every phase of nuclear-energy production. A deep look into the issue of nuclear power would lead to overwhelming evidence to support ending nuclear power as a source of energy.
