In the 20th Century, air pollution produced by the fossil fuels killed over five million Americans. It contributes to two of our worst environmental problems—acid rain and global warming. By contrast, Western-built nuclear power has not been responsible for even one death in the public sector. It’s increased use would lessen our trade deficit, and decrease acid rain and global warming. So, why aren’t we building nuclear power plants? Since 1974, anti-nuclear power activists have prevented the construction of nuclear power plants through the dissemination of fear and superstition. When the records of the fossil fuels and nuclear power are set straight, nuclear power is clearly superior. This is the opinion of almost one million scientists and medical doctors who have gone on record as favoring the use of nuclear power.
