I wrote a post about nuclear power on Monday; here’s an article that appeared the following day in the Guardian, which echoes similar sentiments about the “science” practiced by opponents of nuclear power.
Over the last fortnight I’ve made a deeply troubling discovery. The anti-nuclear movement to which I once belonged has misled the world about the impacts of radiation on human health. The claims we have made are ungrounded in science, unsupportable when challenged, and wildly wrong. We have done other people, and ourselves, a terrible disservice.
Kudos to Mr. Monbiot for such a transparent analysis. It’s rare to come across serious and objective introspection of this sort.
