2021-07-03 Lilienthal And Nuclear Power

For those who claim that nuclear power is safe. Here is a quote from Wikipedia biography on David E. Lilienthal:

<< In his 1963 book, Change, Hope and the Bomb, Lilienthal criticized nuclear developments, denouncing the nuclear industry’s failure to have addressed the dangers of nuclear waste. He suggested that a civil atomic energy program should not be pursued until the “substantial health hazards involved were eliminated”.[49] Lilienthal argued that it would be “particularly irresponsible to go ahead with the construction of full scale nuclear power plants without a safe method of nuclear waste disposal having been demonstrated”. However, Lilienthal stopped short of a blanket rejection of nuclear power. His view was that a more cautious approach was necessary.[49][50] >>
