Photo proof that the nuclear industry isn’t too (you pick) honest/bright

The Nuclear Energy Institute is promoting nuclear power (great) in the wake of Obama’s climate speech (gross) with this photo (imbecilic/dishonest):

Carbon dioxide is, of course, INVISIBLE!

  1. Have they stopped using graphite moderators?

  2. I doubt that their pretty blue sky with white fluffy clouds is meant to depict CO2, or any other form of carbon. However, it is pretty silly to boast about the potential of your technology to reduce the ongoing improvement in agricultural productivity which helps feed the world.

    • Nuclear power does make skies clearer via carbon dioxide reduction.

      • Well… less CO2 means less plant growth which means less pollen in the springtime. Less CO2 also means less food for the poor, which means more starving children, which means fewer adults someday, which means fewer factories, campfires, candlelight dinners, etc. polluting the atmosphere.

        Yes, I see how less CO2 could make the skies clearer. :-/

  3. 1. Carbon Dioxide doesn’t cloud skies, although smoke of course does.
    2. The nuclear industry is using the “throw the others first and maybe the wolves won’t eat us” theory. History says the wolves will be along for the nukes shortly.

  4. Nuclear has been getting hammered by junk science activists for so long, they’ll do almost anything to promote the industry. Can’t blame them, really, but they aren’t helping.
