It is with horror that I read that the Canadian Liberal Government is now promoting Nuclear Energy as Clean and Nice — according to Jim Carr, Minister of Natural Resources. This is to be launched in May 2018. The International Energy Agency projects that nuclear energy generation needs to double by 2040 to meet global clean energy needs. It is backed by Canada, Japan, USA, Argentina, Poland, Russia, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates. How can all those countries ignore the horrendous news that came from Japan? When did nuclear become clean? Have none of those countries heard of the pollution that comes from mining uranium and the impossibility of locating a safe disposal site for radioactive waste? Nuclear energy is not clean.
