‘BLOODY HELL, NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS CAN BE DANGEROUS!’ ANNOUNCES NOBEL LAUREATE March 17, 2011Posted by feedthemoon in Uncategorized.
President Obama looked ashen as he emerged from a special screening of the 1980’s televsion drama, ‘Edge of Darkness’. He immediately gathered together a group of leading scientists and oil company representatives, and what followed was a frank and candid exchange of views. The White House Press Secretary observed that during the course of the meeting, ‘it was like a 100-watt-low-energy-light-bulb had suddenly switched on over the President’s head’.
Later that day, at a White House press briefing, Obama, dressed casually in golfing attire, seemed to sound the death-knell on the nuclear industry:
‘Last night in the White House Screening room I watched ‘The China Crisis’ with Jack Lemmon in it. And what we now know, beyond doubt, is that nuclear power can be pretty goddam dangerous’.
The president, obviously moved, seemed particularly Kennedy-esque as he switched between auto-cue screens; ‘Bloody dangerous in fact.’ he added, solemnly.
Following on from the Japanese nuclear crisis, many commentators are now expecting nothing short of a ‘seismic shift’ away from nuclear energy policy from all Western policy-makers.
‘What we’re seeing now is nothing less than a MELTDOWN, if you will, in ATTITUDES to nuclear dependency’ observed the BBC’s Robert Peston.
Peston also claimed that energy-watchdogs and ‘insiders’, are now viewing ‘the nuclear option’ as something of a ‘spent rod’.
