The most recent pro-nuclear presentation by Patrick Moore, a former Greenpeace activist turned PR consultant, was at the annual conference of EnergySolutions. EnergySolutions is described by Salt Lake Tribune journalist Judy Fahys as a "Salt Lake City-based company trying to become the nation's - and perhaps the world's - largest nuclear waste company." In his presentation, Moore argued that there should be a massive expansion of the number of nuclear power stations beyond the current 103 nuclear power stations in operation. "We have to talk about 100 or 200 new plants in the U.S.," he said. Vanessa Pierce, executive director of the Healthy Environment Alliance of Utah is unpersuaded. "Patrick Moore is to nuclear power what the Tobacco Institute was to Big Tobacco," she said. "Nuclear power and reprocessing are no more promising solutions for global warming than smoking is for leading a healthy lifestyle."
