Another Environmental Group Talks out of Their Ass on Nuclear Power

If these groups care so much about carbon and getting rid of it then nuclear power is the only way to get there quickly. The Japanese and the French know it and the Chinese and Indians are on their way to knowing it. Bu these groups still have their heads in the sand.

The environmental group Friends of the Earth responded to Alexander’s speech, saying the nuclear power industry won’t build reactors without “taxpayer-backed loan guarantees.” Friends of the Earth President Erich Pica said Alexander’s call for more nuclear construction “is really a call for U.S. taxpayers to foot the bill so that some of the world’s largest multi-national corporations can make huge profits.”

These groups are certainly not financially savvy from their idiotic statement. A loan guarantee will only be needed if the company cannot pay their loan back on time. These companies would rather not make a billion dollar commitment and then have an asinine group like the Friends of the Earth get some leftist judge to halt the building of their power plant. Any environmentalist that is anti-nuclear even with a closed fuel cycle system is a fool.
