Message to SAFE from Greenpeace: “We need solutions that are fast and affordable and that rules out new nuclear power.”

This is from Jim Riccio, Greenpeace’s Nuclear Policy Analyst since 2001. He starts by commenting on the 2013 movie about “new nuclear power,” Pandora’s Promise:

quotation marks

…I do have this article from FAIR (Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting), which calls the film pure propaganda.

and this from Eco watch:

I also mentioned the articles by Joe Romm, a MIT physicist and climate advocate who has had an ongoing battle with the utter garbage produced by the BreakThrough
Institute & the PP [Pandora’s Promise] crowd. Here are a few of my favorites:

On Pandora’s Promise:

On BTI [Breakthrough Institute] :

And while I respect & supported James Hansen and his whistleblowing on the Bush administration’s climate change denial he doesn’t know nukes!

If we want to abate climate change we need solutions that are fast and affordable, and that rules out new nuclear power.

NoNewNukes!
