In spite of the press articles to the contrary, the self-proclaimed “nuclear renaissance” is no solution to the global warming problem, and is likely to create even worse nuclear proliferation problems than we currently have with Iran and North Korea, says Dr. Arjun Makhijani, President of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research of Takoma Park, Maryland.

Dr. Makhijani details the failings of nuclear power, and why we should be pursuing a radically different energy future.

The Denial Machine

In the past few years, a hurricane has engulfed the debate about global warming. This scientific issue has become a rhetorical firestorm with science pitted against spin and inflammatory words on both sides.

This documentary shows how fossil fuel corporations have kept the global warming debate alive long after most scientists believed that global warming was real and had potentially catastrophic consequences. It shows that companies such as Exxon Mobil are working with top public relations firms and using many of the same tactics and personnel as those employed by Phillip Morris and RJ Reynolds to dispute the cigarette-cancer link in the 1990s. Exxon Mobil sought out those willing to question the science behind climate change, providing funding for some of them, their organizations and their studies.
