Nuclear Power Boom

The Greensboro News-Record reported on 3/23/06, on page B4, that The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has expanded an investigation into allegations of poor security at the Shearon Harris nuclear plant owned by Progress Energy.

This is an investigation that started in January initiated by complaints by the Union of Concerned Scientists and the NC Waste Awareness and Reduction Network. See this from the Raleigh Independent report DECEMBER 14, 2005, "Guards sound alarm over security at Shearon Harris nuclear plant"

I am not at all happy about more nuclear plants going up. Just what are we going to do with the spent fuel rods?? Very bad business when there are so many alternatives like solar and wind, or the one you keep talking about Diane, because we surely will never run out of trash! Brenda
