Karlin limits his explanation to the obvious question as to why US mainstream media ignored the problem to only one reason--corporate greed:
Of course, the boosters who will profit off of nuclear power don't mention other disasters, such as Chernobyl, or near disasters, such as Three Mile Island.I think that there is a much bigger reason for this censorship. It is because nuclear power is the only existing source of power that can limit the amount of greenhouse gases rising into the atmosphere that is causing climate destabilization.
The growth imperative of capitalism absolutely needs this form of power to exist, and those that benefit from the system must preserve it as a legitimate alternative. The latter's addiction to the power and wealth that the system provides for them blinds them to the widespread harmful consequences to the health of humans and other life forms that nuclear power causes. Hence, the censorship by mainstream media of this report.
