FROM THE ARTICLE***
"Wolf Creek is a blessing, and we'd love to see Unit Two (built) and do it all over again," Merry said, referring to the indefinite plans and hopes that an additional unit may be added in the future. "The county has zero debt. The school district has zero debt. Burlington is the only one in our area that has any debt. There have been an awful lot of infrastructure improvements around the county."***
Solar Power verses Nuclear Power???
#3 Apr 3, 2009
How about both? Let's build a few breeder reactors to process nuclear waste and increase the nuclear fuel supply. It is time to allow the construction of breeders and and renewable energy sources to help us get off the fossil fuel slop trough.
#4 Apr 3, 2009
I have NO problem with breeder reactors...in fact I believe this country should resupply their nuclear arsenal. I also believe the supply of nuclear fuel should be increased and there should be new construction of nuclear plants.
I also believe if you support the solar movement you should invite K-SEC to build it's proposed plant in your town. Contact information has been posted.
#5 Apr 3, 2009
I agree heartily! Construct Wolf Creek 2...and get research and development into high gear for solar! Oh yeah, r&d for fuel cell too. It takes a lot of electricity to extract hydrogen for fuel cell technology.
New breeders and solar development are a great start.
