Evidence #1: The CEO of Westinghouse Electric, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of nuclear reactors, said that health risks from Fukushima were minimal, even for people living within the exclusion zone (Financial Times). I urge you to find the differences between his arguments and George Monbiot’s.
Evidence #2: Mark Lynas is so desperate to “show” how renewables cannot replace nuclear power that he’s even willing to repeat an argument from the Breakthrough Institute, an US anti-environmental right-wing think-tank. The argument goes that replacing nuclear power with wind in Japan would require about half of the country’s land. As Joe Romm demonstrates (Climate Progress), the real figure is lower than 1%.
Lynas reacts by writing a comment a bit like “oops, yeah, big mistake… I should have double-checked the Breakthrough Institute’s data”. Yeah, that would be a good idea, not to use data from pro-nuclear lobbies as if it was an undeniable truth. But, then again, how would he support his wild claims on nuclear power?
