Even a very sympathetic reviewer in Time magazine (6/21/13) admitted that he "would have liked to have seen a more meaningful debate on screen--the only opponents of nuclear power that appear come off as bonkers."

Does the film get the facts right? Critics of nuclear power say absolutely not. For instance, as the Nation\'s Mark Hertsgaard (6/16/13) shows, the film misleads viewers about the health effects of the Chernobyl disaster. It also has very little to say about the costs associated with building nuclear power plants in the first place--a critical question as humanity considers the best way to transition away from climate-wrecking fossil fuels.

So why is CNN giving viewers a one-sided brief in favor of nuclear power? Nuclear power doesn\'t need uncritical cheerleading--it needs a debate where all sides are heard.'); return false;">...
