Edward McGaffigan, Jr., the longest-serving member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, has died after a long battle with skin cancer. He was 58. McGaffigan, a strong advocate for nuclear power, said the government should scrap its plan to store the country's nuclear waste at a site in Yucca Mountain, Nevada.
can you say KARMA!
Let's see... Ed is dead from skin cancer according to your first sentence. In your second sentence, Ed was age 58 at the time of death. Third sentence: Ed didn't like waste storage at Yucca. Then you challenge the collective "you" to say KARMA. Is there a logical string here or is this a game they play on your home planet?

On the positive side, FPL is a good company and will operate all of its nuclear plants quite safely. I was impressed with their Turkey Point Plant a few years ago when I was the lead consulting engineer inspecting one of their key safety systems, which had zero issues or problems.

Having been intensively involved with most aspects of the nuclear business for over 40 years, I have to say that it is the most promising and least polluting source of energy for the future, and it will be key to the efficient production of hydrogen to replace petroleum over the next 3 decades. Safety is no longer an issue for anyone who really understands the nuclear industry, but it will always require continued attention.

There will always be nuclear detractors out there, all seeking to be important contributors. Few if any really know what they are talking about, but they do it anyway. Just ask those individuals what qualifies them to comment at all, since almost all experienced nuclear plant workers laugh at them and their concerns.

If you ask me the same question, I refer you to my website, technidigm.org , in particular:
