EDITORIAL: Nuclear is here to stay

March 25, 2011 at 7:16 am Leave a comment

The anti-nuclear power flags are being waved again thanks to the issues occurring with the nuclear plants in Japan.

It is true and accepted that the nuclear plants are facing serious problems but mainstream media is absolutely sensationalizing the dangers of nuclear radiation.

The media in Pangasinan should take the time to publish or air all sides on nuclear issues.

The people of Pangasinan should also take time to read about nuclear power and not become victims of fear raised by mainstream media.

Nuclear power, all things considered, is not something to be afraid of.

The nuclear industry produces safe, clean, cheap and reliable electricity.

This is the proper time for people of Pangasinan to hear all sides in relation to the use of nuclear energy.

Let us not just embrace the orientation of fear being peddled by anti-nuclear activists.

There are people who were anti nuclear activists who one day awoke into the real world to realize that nuclear energy holds the key to energy sovereignty and economic growth.

After the Japan nuclear fear mongering dies down, the construction of new nuclear power plants will continue around the world and Japan will continue building its nuclear power plants.

After the Three Mile Island Accident, the Chernobyl issue and now the Japan nuclear issue…America, Russia, Japan and other countries will not close down their nuclear power plants.

In fact, they will build more because it is safe, clean, cheap and reliable.

As for the Philippines, it will not take the risk of operating a nuclear power plant.

The Philippines, since it is composed of people of fear, will be left behind in the use of nuclear energy for power generation.

People in Pangasinan have been living in a subjective culture of fear due to religion, politics and other factors.

Filipinos fear high priests, fear public officials in the corridors of power, fear the military, fear the police, fear aswangs, fear nuclear.

It is time for the people to develop a new orientation and face new realities in terms of power generation.
