How about wind turbines ? We live close to the coast and the winds are near constant around here. May not be THE answer to all our energy needs but certainly safer than having a nuclear reactor downwind.
John, you're right, your argument is crap. Did you know that VC was, and probably still is, working on a nuclear program? Similar to the one they have in place for process technology and the one they are developing for CAT. It's called workforce development. That's how people in our area get those jobs.
What happened in Japan would never happen here. First of all we don't get earthquakes or tsunamis. Second, the reactor was past its prime and should have been taken off line.
I don't think nuclear is the only solution to our energy problem, but shouldn't we be open to ALL solutions?
Bring Your Boots and FUll Toxic gear as well. Come to Victoria to seeglowing alligators. I know tourism must have gone way up in Bay City to watch the cranes and trucks.
And they regularly spend big bucks to lobby against other types of power companies that might present competition. They don't want to compete on a level playing field. They only care about making money. Nuclear disasters can happen anywhere, any when they happen, people melt from the inside. Do you want to die or should our country develop safer technologies? Victoria is growing without nuclear power. We don't need it.
I have never seen two headed people around Bay City's nuclear plant. We do in fact, have two faced people in Victoria. No radiation required!
There probably aren't 500 people on the planet that give a crap about the whooping crane.
Nuclear Energy is safe. The Japanese have had few if any real problems, but who could plan for a 40 tsunami.
Bring it on Exelon, the majority of the people in this area want you NOW!!!
Let's ask some of the folks over in Bay City about how they feel about living near a nuke plant.
What is your solution to our energy issues?
If Victoria allows Exelon to move in, I'm moving out. I don't want to raise my children in the shadow of a nuclear power plant. This has not been a good thing in the past, and it will not be a good thing in the future. The citizens of Victoria should take a stand before it's too late. As likely as we are to encounter floods and hurricanes - this is BAD NEWS, folks. It hasn't been that long since the Fukishima disaster, or did everyone FORGET?!
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to use the google search engine to find out how heinous Exelon really is. They don't give a crap about the whooping crane and they don't give a crap about the safety of OUR citizenry (or anyone elses for that matter). All they see when they look at Victoria are DOLLAR SIGNS!
