Today, we kicked off a four-part series on nuclear power — more of which may be coming to a vacant lot near you.
The U.S. Senate is now considering a measure that would help finance a boom in the building of atomic energy plants. Proponents call the new nukes an answer to the problem of climate change and greenhouse gases. Opponents, including the veteran no-nukes Bonnie Raitt call it a disaster waiting to happen.
Below, Raitt and some famous friends make their case against nuclear energy.
Next, another guy, less famous, objects to Raitt and company.
And one more: Bonnie Raitt's been at this no-nuke thing for a while.
