Pandora's False Promises

Pandora's Promise, is a new pro-nuclear propaganda documentary released theatrically in the US in July 2013. It is funded in part by individuals with a vested interest in seeing the development of new reactors and is seemingly a vehicle by which to raise the profile of the anti-environmental Oakland think tank, The Breakthrough Institute, whose personnel feature prominently in the film. Despite the film's premise and early claim that it features "a growing number of leading former anti-nuclear activists" who now support nuclear energy, no one in the film ever led the anti-nuclear movement. Nor was any credible, independent scientific or medical professional with expertise in the areas covered in the film consulted or featured. Beyond Nuclear has bird-dogged the film from the beginning, and has produced numerous critiques. We have also published a definitive report - Pandora's False Promises: Busting the pro-nuclear propaganda - and a two-page synopsis. These documents address virtually all of the myths, lies and omissions typically found in pro-nuclear rhetoric and are intended to address these long after Pandora's Promise fades into deserved oblivion.

Sign our petition to keep CNN honest!

CNN WILL AIR PANDORA'S PROMISE PROPAGANDA FILM IN NOVEMBER. SIGN OUR PETITION TODAY TO REQUEST A LIVE AND FACT-BASED DISCUSSION ON CNN.

Please sign our petition today to ask CNN for a live discussion with independent, qualified experts afterPandora's Promise airs.

Pandora's Promise is a blatant piece of propaganda. No effort was made by the filmmakers to seek out or feature independent experts with sound, unconflicted insights into the issues covered. There are misstatements and serious factual omissions in this film tailored to its promotional message that will mislead CNN's viewers.

We will be recommending that CNN features a panel of serious scientists, medical practitioners and nuclear power experts who can set the record straight with facts not rhetoric.

We'll send the petition to CNN's Programming Department and to CNN Films who purchased the film.
