  • Nuclear plant opponents get meetings to voice views

    Critics of Progress Energy’s proposed Levy County nuclear plant will have another chance to voice their opposition to the facility that some say will hurt the area’s environment and damage the local aquifer.

    The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board (ASLB) will hold two public meetings Jan. 12 to hear additional comments about the proposed facility. The plant would include two 1,100-megwatt Westinghouse reactors, each capable of generating enough power for nearly 900,000 homes.

    webmasters comment:

    U.S. anti-nuclear organizations should integrate in common cause with 1 strong anti nuclear campaign across the country, then focus on each state separatly with combined force. Right now anti-nuclear efforts, altough our voices are getting louder are similar to attacking a fortress with a knife.
