Nuclear power was once thought as the greatest thing since sliced bread. The nuclear age was going to be a golden time for humanity where we could do anything and become masters of our fate. Now it’s feared and reviled as the worst of man’s sins and proof of how scientists are going to destroy the planet (or something like that). The film Pandora’s Promise attempts to follow environmentalists as they discuss why they have decided to support nuclear power. During their journey they travel around the world, to lovely spots including Chernobyl, Fukushima, and a lovely beach in Brazil. While I do believe this film is trying to paint nuclear energy in a good light, and so doesn’t tell the entire story, it is a good counterpoint to most of the things you have probably been told.
