Greenpeace Founder Comes Full Circle on Nuclear

BETHESDA, MD -- Dr. Patrick Moore, a founding member of Greenpeace, reconsiders the global benefits of nuclear energy in the latest edition of ElectricTV.net. Says Dr. Moore, now chairman and chief scientist of the Vancouver-based consultancy Green Spirit Strategies, the protest against nuclear energy that began in the 1970s was "so focused on nuclear weapons and nuclear war that we lumped all things nuclear in the same category as being evil. We made the mistake of not recognizing that nuclear energy was a beneficial use, that it was a clean energy source that does not produce greenhouse gas and air pollution like the fossil fuels do."

Dr. Moore's take on many other environmental issues is also worth consideration.

A mea culpa by Moore is decades short and dollars wasted...

Better than nothing. Too many ecotwits go into anaphylactic shock whenever they hear the sound of the words "nuclear" or "radiation".

That was how you could tell that "irradiated foods" would never fly:
What PR-challenged moron decided that that should be the name applied is a mystery wrapped in an enigma promulgated by a pinhead. They were doomed from the day of the naming.
