Senator Lamar Alexander has been a supporter of nuclear power for decades. In this recent report, he describes what the United States will be like if we don't start building nuclear power plants, resolving what to do with spent nuclear fuel, and how to manage the actual waste after recycling fuel in fast reactors.
The Earthquake and tsunami in Japan in 2011 were a tragedy. Thousands of lives lost from these natural events. The media has worked without end to spread unwarranted fear about radiation from the damaged nuclear power plants at Fukushima. The public has generally accepted what the media and fear mongers have told them. This article by Kim Martini, published by CFACT.ORG along with hundreds of other articles by scientists set the record straight. The main causes of death were the tsunami and the stress caused by unnecessarily uprooting families and retired people from their home, communities and friends. This is a man-made real tragedy.
T.D. Luckey: Most of the world press assumes that all radiation is harmful. If the Japanese government acts on this presumption in responding to the nuclear reactor damage from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami at Fukushima, Japan's already reeling economy will be crushed by tremendous unwarranted expense. Japan should learn from Chernobyl what Mikhail Gorbachev understood too late: "The nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl 20 years ago... was perhaps the real cause of the collapse of the Soviet Union five years later."
