I really don't know which is worse- narrow-minded regurgitation of insane, impossible, xnophobic rhetoric, or this guy, this narrator, who thinks it's a good idea to look into the camera while he's driving.

Truth is, in the long run, he is the more dangerous one.
The medium is the message.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
-Robert Frost

Seeing as that video is 70+ minutes, I won't be watching it. I simply can't take the time right now. But it doesn't matter how many times people deny Catastrophic Global Climate Change, it is happening, and happening faster every year. And the signs have been there for over 20 years. Shall we wait another 20 years to react?

Are you sure you're not thinking of French Polynesia?

If you're talking about the Rhone River problem, it's a result of manufacturing, not nuclear power plants. The fact that the media calls the issue The French Chernobyl is misleading.

From Environmental Graffiti:

The Grand Large area of the Rhone outside Lyon is a tourist magnet, but the pollution in the water and its effect on wildlife has led the World Wildlife Fund to christen the area the “French Chernobyl”. The river’s sediment and fish show toxic levels of PCBs. PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyl, are an industrial chemical used to manufacture generators and electrical items, among others. They’re known to cause infertility and birth defects, and they may be carcinogenic.
