Ralph Nader, Global Warming and Nuclear Power

Famed consumer advocate Ralph Nader is not serious about global warming because he opposes nuclear power. In fact, not only does he have a very long history of opposing nuclear power, he will probably continue to aggressively oppose this technology that could be an important tool in the fight against global warming. Ralph Nader is running for president again and we are including his position on this issue along with the rest of the candidates.

In the 1970's and 1980's Nader was a key leader in the anti-nuclear power movement. Ralph Nader has been described as '...the titular head of opposition to nuclear energy.' He advocates the complete elimination of nuclear energy in favor of solar, tidal, wind and geothermal, citing environmental, worker safety, migrant labor, national security, disaster preparedness, foreign policy, government accountability and democratic governance issues to bolster his position. His legacy in this area is continued by his organizational progeny Public Citizen Energy Program. (Wikipedia) ( Frontline Interview)
