Greenpeace Trots Out 911 For Anti-Nuclear Power Ad
Capitalizing on Friday the 13th fears, Greenpeace, through The Viral Chart, has released an online video (here too) that, with compelling imagery, claims building more nuclear plants is an invitation to terrorists 911-style. Sarah North, head of Greenpeace's nuclear campaign, said, "Millions of people could die as a result of a terrorist attack on a nuclear plant. This is a totally unacceptable risk. This film shows that building new nuclear power stations is a catastrophic gift to terrorists."
Perhaps until we get the fission fusion thing figured out maybe nuclear power isn't the safest thing around but oil which is rife with political implications may not last forever, no one seems to car about solar and wind gets minimal play. Of course we shouldn't build ticking time bombs that could erase entire cities if something goes wrong but one would hope that even a terrorist would think twice before pulling a Hiroshima on the free world.
Apparently, the video is in reaction ot UK Prime Minister Tony Blair's position on nuclear power and how it could reduce fossil fuel-induced climate change.
