Public right to panic over nuclear

Since the nuclear incidents in Japan, our ruling elite has employed anyone who seems knowledgeable about nuclear power stations and the like to try to talk down the panic the general public feels about nuclear energy.

There are claims that nuclear power can be better supervised and more efficient.

But the thing is that where nuclear power is concerned the public is quite correct to feel panic – we have no way of cleaning it up safely.

Proof of this is the fact that waste from the beginning of nuclear power generation up till now is being stored, not dealt with. That tells us the industry does not know how to deal with waste.

From an early age we are told not to take chances in life if no proper exit strategy is available.
