What Does Japan's Nuclear Crisis Mean for the Climate Movement?

Commented Apr 2, 2011 at 01:04:26 in Green

“Nuclear power is certainly one solution to climate change. The climate has and will definitely continue to change as a result of current and future nuclear use. Tens of thousands of tons of highly radioactive nuclear waste distributed over the earth will eventually leak into the environment. No practical containment system has yet been conceived that would last more than one or two hundred years at the most and the vast majority of waste is being stored in temporary storage systems which are vulnerable to failure as we have just witnessed. Once these leakages and disasters become common place, the human population will be drastically reduced and the climate will change again - regaining some of it's prior abundance and diversity. The destruction caused by humans will be seen as a relatively short period of time in the eternal flow of history.”
