Oil and Nuclear Power: Gary Lunn's Costly New Fossil Fuel Plan

PEJ News - Sue Stroud -
I noticed this reappearance of the nuclear industry during the last federal election when every candidate was given a little glossy booklet heralding nuclear power as the best and quickest option for solving the energy crisis. Gary Lunn, MP in Saanich-Gulf Islands is the Minister for Natural Resources. He is a great supporter of the 'new' nuclear power. I have no doubt that this industry will be pushing its tax-sucking agenda as hard as it can, in the next election and citizens need to be ready to push back.

Replacing CO2 spewing fossil fuels with radiation emitting nuclear power plants is simply replacing one irresponsible technology with another. The poison will have changed and that is all. The great irony here is that there is only enough viable uranium in the world to keep the industry going for 30 to 40 years which is hardly a sustainable answer to our energy crisis!
