Ohhh this is nice, Lou Zeller again, what a kook!! Now he's a lawyer? I havent heard that one. It is plain and simple..These so-called environmental groups only have their agenda in mind. They lie to the general public spreading stories of fear for the good of who the represent. Lets see, the facts of Fukushima, 2 major disasters back to back (Earthquake and Tsunami). This coupled with the fact that Japan, or TEPCO, had not designed the plant with historical records of past tsunami tidal elevations, also, they did not factor in the possibility of their diesel generator safety system could be choked out because the vault housing them was NOT water tight. Thats pretty simple of WHY this happened. Here in America, we design with safety factors in consideration that other countriesdo not consider, even though the plant type may be similar. All being said, when was the last time we had a major earthquake and a tsunami to follow Lou? Fukushima did not happen just because the earthquake. How many tsunamis roll up the Tennessee River Lou? Now these groups want to halt all things, with the unemployment rate as it is, how good is this for our country?
Jeez!!! How much more of a snow job can these politicians try and hand the people? Their reports reek of out and out lies. First of all tnvolssuckbad is correct. The fact is Washington D.C. (The District of Corruption) are liars, they do not include the unfortunate souls that have had their benefits run out....THE TRUTH IS the unemployment rate is FAR, FAR higher than ever, it is more in the area of 15-16% or higher...thats 15 16 people out of 100 that are now unemployed. The fact is Washington blows smoke screens on how bad things have become. Now you have these other so-called environmental quacks not wanting us to build anything...where in the heck is our common sense?
Tammy, you sure talk about being informed but, evidentally, you are not. That crud coming from your misinformed statement is not true at all. It seems the anti's are alive and well, trying to scare the general public with lies and deciet. Nuclear power has proved it is safe, reliable and efficient....I think the days of the 70's scare tactics may not work any longer.
I love these made up group names that, in light of the made up names, they try to convey to the public that they are truley something of an environmental, congressional, or a bonefide group. Truth is, most are radical, anti american, anti technology, anti industry groups and nothing more than a bowel movement on a plate. They tout nothing more than lies and scare tactics to the general public who have no idea what it takes to design, build and operate a nuclear plant. Most of these angry, constipated, know nothings will tell the pubic anything to get them to fall in with their close to cultist ways and views.
