Nuclear Street reported on a new documentary by Robert Stone that has raised contentious questions among environmentalists.

Stone commented:

It’s no easy thing for me to have come to the conclusion that the rapid deployment of nuclear power is now the greatest hope we have for saving us from an environmental catastrophe. Yet this growing realization has led me to question many of the founding tenets of traditional environmentalism, from the belief that we can dramatically reduce our energy demand through energy efficiency to the belief that solar and wind power will one day power the planet,” Stone said in his director’s statement for “Pandora’s Promise.” “If there was a single ‘ah-ha’ moment it was when I was granted entry into a room in France (the size of a basketball court) where all the waste from powering 80 percent of the country for 30 years is stored: four cylindrical tubes 10 meters long and 1 meter wide are all that’s left from powering the city of Paris for 30 years with clean nuclear energy! I thought, ‘My God, what on Earth were we thinking?’
