If we built clean nuclear plants, we would not have to burn all that dirty coal.

NM won't do that until nuclear power becomes obsolete, if ever<G>. We're always one giant step behind the rest of this nations technology - yesterdays technology tomorrow.

Nuclear power has its safety issues, but it is not the boogie man that many people see it as. I think they watched too many bad sci-fi movies from the 1950s and 60s about radiation-induced mutations and monsters.

I would take a modern nuclear power plant over the filthy coal-burners we have now that belch carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and mercury into our air. The "clean coal" mythology is just industry propaganda.

Amen. I just drove back from 'Vegas a couple of days ago, and remembered why I am thankful to have a recirculation option in my Versa's AC system; Cholla Power Plant.

the Fukushima Daiichi disaster is a more recent real reminder of the actual concerns with nuclear power. Not insurmountable, but not to be taken lightly or mocked.

Me too but the yuppie anti-nuke zealots would rather burn coal, or maybe bathe in a cold stream (we of course have so many...) than with hot water. Maybe they take sand baths - PEW! I'd have no problem w/ a Nuke PP providing our electricity. Shoot, maybe some of the stuff LA casts off would be usable<G>.

It appears that they didn't follow their own safety checks and guidelines for their plant, but then I don't know that for a fact, just part of what I've read which is slanted to both sides of the issue.

Has anyone figured out yet how this train derailed?

No option for generating power is without risk. As with the previous nuclear accidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, the lessons learned at Fukushima will result in safer reactors.

Bottom line is that the nukes released by TMI, Chernobyl and Fukushima pose far less of a threat to those of us here in NM than the mercury that is spewed out by coal-burning plants on a daily basis.
