Nuclear Power is Not the Answer

Dr. Caldicott explains the nuclear fuel cycle and that, over the life of a nuclear power plant (which couldn’t be built without tax payer subsidies), the plant puts out the same amount of greenhouse gases as a fossil fuel plant does. In addition, we are left to store the spent fuel rods for the next half million years. She does provide alternatives and points out that the sun provides us with three times the energy we need every day. Dr. Caldicott also explains the medical effects of nuclear power and the madness of stockpiling nuclear arms.
