Today: the nuclear lobby’s most charming new lie – ”energy independence”

I’ve often pointed out the prevailing lies about nuclear power. The big one is, of course:

No 1 ”Nuclear power has nothing to do with nuclear weapons”‘

Then – in order of current popularity:

  • nuclear power is essential to stop climate change
  • is clean, green
  • cheap
  • renewablw
  • safe
  • necessary for medicine
  • its toxic waste problem is solved
  • provides 1000s of clean gooid jobs
  • necessary for space research

There are probably more lies, but right now, I am fascinated with this fashionable new lie – that nuclear power is necessary for energy independence, national sovereignty – blah blah.

What an obvious outright lie! Perhaps the world will actually notice this one!

Sunshine, wind, tides – these forms of energy are truly national – going straight to the local technology. Nuclear is certainly not – starting from the need to import uranium, – going eventually to the likely need to dump te toxic waste onsome other poor sucker nation.

We might get bored with indordinate attention lavished on sporting heroes. We might laugh at the politicians’electioneering stunts – much baby-kissing, koala-hugging, tractor-driving, wearing of cowboy hats………… But the […]
