Greenpeace co-founder, ex-director calls nuclear safest energy
A former director and founding member of the environmental organization Greenpeace says he disagrees with the group’s stance on nuclear energy.
“Nuclear energy is the safest of all the electricity technologies we have,” Dr. Patrick Moore told NewsNation’s “Special Report.”
He pointed to more than 100 nuclear plants in the U.S. and Canada that are currently operational and said no one has ever been injured as a result of radiation.
Moore said the Chernobyl disaster of 1986 is a “complete exception” because the Russians built a poorly designed reactor.
