TV Show Dogs Nuclear Power

The NBC movie '10.5 Apocalypse' showed an earthquake fault moving towards Houston, Texas and a fictional nuclear power plant there. A black woman commentator reported that if the plant and spent fuel pool were damaged 75 million people could be killed. And here we didn't even know there were 75 million people in Texas.

It is this type of show that unfortunately keeps the public wary about nuclear power. Hollywood consistently gives nuclear power a bum rap. Nuclear power is an easy whipping boy for writers, producers and directors. They never present the good news that nuclear power provides 20% of our electricity in the U.S. without contributing any greenhouse or smog-forming gases.
