The Sky Is Not Falling

In response to news that Energy Alberta plans to build a twin-CANDU plant, the London Free-Press (Ontario) had this to say:

As concerns about global warming rise to fever pitch, a full-flung debate on the role of nuclear energy in reducing CO2 emissions -- and fears about safety -- is essential.

You'd think the green movement, which led the charge to reduce CO2 emissions, would welcome such an opportunity.

Instead, they've responded to an application to build a $6.2 billion nuclear power plant in northern Alberta with the usual booga-booga rhetoric that unfortunately clings to the development of nuclear energy in Canada.

The half-truths and dubious scientific claims by these groups lead one to believe they do their research by watching the Simpsons.
