Nuclear Lies

Once in a while you find another blog which says exactly what you think. That is what I find with Greg Laden's recently blog Japan Nuclear Disaster Update # 40: Fukushima Plant is Still Producing Energy! (In a bad way).

The blog points out how the Nuclear Industry* continues to do an injustice to the truth, including changing definitions when it benefits them. One of the major reasons I oppose nuclear energy is for exactly that reason - the nuclear industry continues to mislead the public about itself.

Another interesting thing in the news items given in the blog is the request by TEPCO (the operator of Fukushima) for 12 billion US dollars from the government for business losses. Sorry, but I am sick and tired of business saying that they want no government interference and then go crying to that same government for money because that cannot manage their own risks. You cannot have the cake and eat it too.
