Here's what I think something Barack Obama also apparently used to think before he was elected president:

"Before an expansion" is considered, key issues must be addressed including: security of nuclear fuel and waste, waste storage, and proliferation."

As Friends of the Earth President Erich Pica recently opined in the Huffington Post, "President Obama should heed candidate Obama's advice."

And the media should reject the use of industry rhetoric, stop using Nukespeak talking points, and start telling us the truth about nuclear power!

Editor's Note: Please ask ABC and NBC why their reporting on the White House's nuclear power plans omitted important facts about nuclear power in favor of the optimistic projections of the nuclear industry. And, in NBC's case, why the report failed to disclose its parent company's financial ties to the nuclear industry.
