the hot air energy

The Nuclear Energy Institute’s Science Club webpage for kids says: “Living within 50 miles of a nuclear power plant accounts for less than two ten-thousandths of 1 percent of our radiation every year.”

Unless there’s an accident.

Unless there’s a terrorist attack.

Unless the plant is having unreported problems.

Fun Facts:

A nuclear power plant requires subsidies paid for by taxpayers and users of the plant’s power.

The huge amount of money invested in building, maintaining and protecting the plant would be better spent on developing sustainable energy.

The nuclear power lobby buys influence in Congress and the White House.

“The Clean Air Energy” is a public relations ad campaign.

The Chernobyl nuclear plant meltdown has been described as “the worst accident in history.” Along with a lost war in Afghanistan, it hastened the downfall of the Soviet Union.
