Concerns that don’t exist when it comes to Wind and Solar Energy… but the ignorant among us are too stupid and gullible to get on board these common sense and future sources of energy.

How many decades has this site been on the "superfund" list?

WHEN are they actually going to clean it up?

I say if the GOP wants new nuke plants then put all toxic waste and nuke plants in the very very rich neighborhoods....No more putting it close to poor and workingclass people. Want to see nuke waste dump sites next to conutry clubs and mansions. If it is such a good source of power then let those who want by there houses.

Same goes for any new coal fired electric plants or oil refineries.

It's pretty hard to clean up nuclear waste since some of that stuff will be radioactive for hundreds of years. So far no one has come up with a safe viable solution to nuclear waste.
