Why not? We're already in the kill zone from the rest of them, so how does one more hurt. Maybe they will pay taxes, unlike the rest of free loaders in this town.

I read we're overdue for the big one. There is a New Madrid fault line in Northern IL. Not sure exactly how far that is from us; doesn't really matter because any earthquake East of the Mississippi will be worse than those on the West coast because of the different soil composition.

Have you seen whats going on in Japan and Nebraska? Oppose, baby, oppose! It's a bad idea overall and only proves itself to be more and more dangerous as the years go on. We need to focus on creating energy in a safer way. I'm not sure renewable energy holds the answers yet but there HAS to be something better than this.

Building a Nuke here is a bad idea what most people don't realize is the spent fuel needs to be cooled for many many years. If a problem occurred at a plant and they couldn't cool the spent fuel we would be in big trouble . there is no easy way to store the spent fuel it just sits in these pools on site waiting for a problem. Nuclear energy is a bad thing and needs to go away. Japan has been pumping gigatons of ocean water to cool their plant after the earthquake think of all that radiated water we haven't seen then full effects of that problem
