Nuclear power is so 1980s

With all the alternative power sources currently available, and those being discovered on an almost daily basis, isn’t it about time, on the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear incident, that someone talks at least some sense into those boneheads. Earlier I was watching a press conference that was held in Montreal, actually near my office. Naturally I was watching it on Youtube and realized it had happened on March 24th, over a month ago, and I hadn’t heard about it, in fact, other than the few journalists that were present, nobody seemed to notice, and then Dr. Helen Caldicott simply “went away” with her warnings about radiation, death, pestilence and other cancers. I suppose that like in the case of an unattended erection, if you ignore it for long enough, it will go away.

Thing is, if you watch the press conference itself, Dr. Caldicott comes across as a complete tool, her body language and sentence building isn’t without reminding us of some of the kooks that show up on weird Internet conspiracy sites, then you check her credentials and you check her source bibliography and the only word left in your mind is: “Woah!”

And with all that’s been said, and not done about Fukushima, I can’t help but feel a lingering after-thought that if we all agreed to switch to wind or solar power we’d all be better off, except for the large corporations and of course, the military.
