Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

National Geographic now a stooge for the International Church of Nuclear

Wild Edens” i s a new documentary series from National Geographic, initiated by Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation

The first film in the series premiered at the X International Forum ATOMEXPO 2018, held on May 14-16 in Sochi (Russia). The documentary will be broadcast on the National Geographic channel in summer 2018.

The premiere was introduced by Ben Heard, from Australia. Pretty much unknown in Australia, Heard is very well known and revered  by the global lobbyists for “new nuclear” –  Small Modular Nuclear Reactors, –  by Rosatom, by the South African nuclear lobby, and American companies like Terrestrial Energy.

Wild Edens promises to focus on climate change. Heard is happy to “ see a major corporation like Rosatom step boldly forward in this way and claim this issue on behalf of nuclear technologies“.

The series is filmed in the world’s most stunning untouched places and their inhabitants – wildlife and fauna alike, endangered by the effects of climate change”  – blah blah

Like a few other recent documentaries ( “Pandora’s Promise”, “Twisting the Dragon’s Tail” and a Brian Cox documentary) – this will be a very soft sell for the nuclear industry.

It will surely be very beautiful, informative about wild places, and worth watching. Just be aware of the underlying religious propaganda about:

  • nuclear power being the essential cure for climate change
  • nuclear power being clean and green
  • nuclear waste problem being solved now, or will be solved.
