Nuclear power is clean and safe. It is extremely efficient. It is so unlikely that a natural disaster would happen here, it is tiny. Even for enough radiation to escape to do any damage if there was an accident.
Well

And explain the cancer cluster in Nemaha and Richardson Counties, and Brownville in particular. In a town of 150 people, I know of 13 reported incidents of cancer. That's 10% of the population. The cancer rate in Brownville wasn't that high in 1969 when they started planning the plant. It's that high now because of God knows what. I have a sneaking suspicion about that power plant, though. We have a long, long way to go before nuclear power plants are at a point where they are fool-proof enough to be relied upon, and the toxic waste is safely disposed of without sending it across the country on a truck or railroad car. The citizens of Nemaha County were promised cheap power when the plant was up and running. I'm not seeing that happening, are you?

Well we happen to live in a county that has one of the highest radon levels in the nation.

The ozone layer is a fraction of what it once was and ultra violet radiation is at all time highs. Have you noticed how fast you sunburn?

The refined food that comes from who knows where?

First off, the International Agency for Research on Cancer states that cancer rates in the US are down significantly in the last decade, and that the leading cause of cancer here is tobacco and obesity, so your claim of elevated cancer levels across the nation is bogus. According to National Geographic, the chlorine that is causing the ozone depletion is now on the decline, and at this rate the ozone levels should return to normal within 50 years or so. Checking facts is probably not in your realm of experience. Maybe it should be. And, yes, I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out that the power plant is involved at some level.

Your facts. You accuse others of not fact checking, yet you have no facts to back up your claims either.

lol, yet your previous post tried to tie cancer to the nuke plant.
Of the 13 you know have cancer how many smoked? how many of those live under major power lines (something all power plants have not just nuke plants)?

I don't have that information. I also don't claim to have the slightest idea what's causing the cancer cluster in this area.
