Not the answer

It was curiously announced "after" the November election that there are plans for a possible nuclear power plant in Fresno. Did you know that the nuclear power process from start to finish actually creates more greenhouse gases than oil? Not to mention that toxic nuclear waste will remain a threat for generations to come?

What else don't you know about nuclear energy? Proponents of this power plant are selling the idea of low-cost energy for Fresno. Do we really want to feed the military plutonium and sacrifice our safety for cheap power? Those who haven't yet read Dr. Helen Caldicott's latest book, "Nuclear Power is Not the Answer" should do so.
