It starts out by making the viewer think the Fukushima power plant meltdowns have cost the taxpayer $250 billion, and since in the U.S. the insurance levels are only $12.6 billion there's a woeful shortfall.
No, the earthquake and tsunami cost about $250 billion. Fukushima costs are insignificant.
They then interview anti-nuclear activist Bob Alvarez. Hello??? Of course his estimates will be outlandishly high and they are. That's a no-brainer.
But the most ridiculous fear mongering is the claim that politicians wouldn't fund any cost overruns not covered by insurance should a major nuclear power accident occur. Not funding it would be political suicide.
Let's look at 9/11, a catastrophe that originally killed around 3,000 people. We've had no problem spending around $5 trillion on that (give or take a few trillion). And we've killed a bunch more Americans and others in the process. All done with largely bipartisan support.
