Pro-Nuclear on TV!
The pro-nuclear documentary Pandora's Promise will be shown on CNN tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern time, 8 p.m. Central time. Plus, for the night owls, there will be encore showings on CNN, starting at 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.
Banned in Germany!
This pro-nuclear documentary is creating a lot of interest and a lot of anger. We are lucky to be able to see it. It's banned-in-Germany. Okay, that is an exaggeration. The movie is not banned, it's just that no TV station in Europe will air it. Here's Rod Adams post on the European refusal to show it. (Warning...video clip includes some sailor-language.)
Supported by Environmentalists!
Top climate change scientists from Carnegie Institute, Columbia University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the University of Adelaide wrote a open letter in favor of nuclear energy. A quote from the letter: ...in the real world there is no credible path to climate stabilization that does not include a substantial role for nuclear power.
Lied about by the Sierra Club!
Aww...just watch the clip below in which the head of the Sierra Club talks about how the U.S. has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions--because the price of solar panels is falling fast! Puh-leeze. Robert Stone, the director of Pandora's Promise, points out that natural gas is replacing coal in the U.S. Solar is not replacing coal.
For some reason, the Sierra Club talks about solar, not natural gas. (snark alert)
Gee, in the old days, (2007-2010), the Sierra Club quietly accepted $26 million dollars from Chesapeake Energy, a natural gas producer. In those days, the Sierra Club was not so reluctant to expound on the virtues of natural gas.

Watch Pandora's Promise! Watch it tonight!
I saw Pandora's Promise at Dartmouth several months ago. Robert Stone presented the movie at key universities. It's a wonderful documentary, and Robert Stone carefully checked everything for accuracy. He had layers of review of the facts presented in the movie. Of course, this doesn't keep nuclear opponents from calling him a liar. Sigh. But what do you expect....
Also, watch out for the "no true Scotsman" logical fallacy being applied to this movie. As in "no true environmentalist..." etc.
