Dominant Social Theme: Too bad. Nuclear power is the solution to global warming.

Free-Market Analysis: Yesterday we provided something of an update on Green technology, which in some instances is not proving anymore successful in the 21st century than it did in the 1970s. We concluded by suggesting that the Green movement was more about centralizing power and control in order to buttress the power elite's goal of one-world government than it was about caring for the environment. Now the Japanese earthquake disaster has lifted the lid on the nuclear power "renaissance" and what it has revealed is positively loony.

There is no doubt that after some 30 years of societal pushback to nuclear power because of Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, nuclear power was staging a comeback. It was a kind of quiet comeback but as the article (excerpted above) explains, the scope of nuclear expansion is absolutely startling for those not directly involved in the industry. Here's some more from Canada's Globe and Mail:

The revival was driven by soaring fossil-fuel prices and the scientific acceptance that carbon dioxide output, a notable byproduct of coal-fired plants, was accelerating the pace of global warming. Countries that had slowed or ended nuclear development, including Sweden and Finland, reversed course. In the United States, 16 new plants are in the proposal stage, according to the World Nuclear Association, though only two are under construction. The nuclear revival seemed assured, as billions of dollars of investments in design, engineering and construction were committed. In an interview in Moscow in February, Russian billionaire industrialist Oleg Deripaska said he saw a bright future for nuclear development "because only nuclear could provide a real solution" to global warming.

The Globe and Mail quotes Ira Helfand, a member of the board of Physicians for Social Responsibility in the United States, as saying, "These reactors are inherently dangerous. They contain the equivalent of 1,000 nuclear bombs." Think about that for a moment. How does the Green environmental movement go from criticizing oil and coal-fueled plants as being bad for the environment to endorsing (or at least not protesting against) nuclear plants containing the equivalent of "1,000 nuclear bombs."

Their answer seems obvious to us: the environmental movement is not about "saving the environment" and never has been. The movement, generously (if secretly) funded by oil interests has always been about manipulating prices, consolidating energy alternatives and, as we pointed out above, creating a command-and-control energy platform that would be ever more amenable to the world-spanning plans of the global elite. There really is no other answer. Do we really believe that the Green movement goes from fighting against coal-powered plants to supporting the emplacement of nuclear power in various municipalities around the world? Do we?
