Nuclear Power

NPRI's Helen Caldicott links nuclear power to global warming

As Congress continues to debate the issue of nuclear waste repositories, industry is pushing nuclear power as an excellent source of clean, safe energy. During today's OnPoint, Nuclear Policy Research Institute founder Helen Caldicott discusses her new book, "Nuclear Power is not the Answer." Caldicott explains the link between nuclear power production and global warming and discusses what she calls a propaganda campaign by industry and the Bush administration to push nuclear power. Caldicott also criticizes environmentalists who support nuclear power as a clean and safe source of energy.
