April 1976
National Review;4/16/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 13, p377
This article looks at issues surrounding Proposition 15, an anti-nuclear initiative in California as of April 1976. In June 1976, the people of California are expected to vote on the initiative, that if approved, will prohibit the construction of nuclear power plants within the state. Numerous people and groups are against nuclear power. One of them is Ralph Nader. He claimed that nuclear plants involved the risk of releasing significant amounts of radioactive materials that may cause cancer or genetic damage.
