Given all the recent negative news of nuclear power coming from the disaster at Fukushima, Japan, it may be hard to believe that an environmentalist would say that opposing nuclear power is a mistake.
According to the BBC, British author, journalist, and environmental activist Mark Lynas said he "grew up hating nuclear power" but later realized that "continuing to oppose nuclear was a mistake."
The BBC news video attached to this article will not necessarily make you love nuclear power but it will give you a viewpoint from an environmentalist who gives his case as to why nuclear power makes sense.
Mark Lynas sets out his reasons for supporting nuclear power. Lynas wants to see more nuclear power in the UK and elsewhere, as he explains in the video, in order to avoid more carbon emissions.
The video is shot at Hinkley Point in Somerset, South West England, the site of two nuclear power stations. EDF Energy, an integrated energy company in the United Kingdom, is planning to build one of the latest generation of nuclear power stations at Hinkley Point.
Fukushima nuclear disaster presents preppers a different side of the story
Environmentalist Mark Lynas delivers a decent presentation on the merits of nuclear power, but the reality of the current issues of the Fukushima nuclear disaster presents a different side of the story.
The Fukushima nuclear disaster raises concerns as to the potential dangers of nuclear power and the potential for a disruption of the flow of food, water, and electricity. Disasters like the Fukushima nuclear accident, and the ongoing clean up issues, gives survivalists and preppers motivation to always be prepared.
