Dancing Clown Rick Perry is in charge of Nuclear Arms and Nuclear Power Plants....his 2 predecessors were Nuclear Physicists, one a Nobel Prize Winner.
Below are just a sampling of recent articles including several about the threats posed by AGING and CRUMBLING Nuclear Power Plants that will require taxpayer bailouts:
"....As Trump sabotages the dollar, watch him blame our economic death spiral on Muslims, commies, immigrants, and people of color.
Trump’s wedge between the US and Germany is a dream come true for Putin’s petro-mafia.
So is his attack on climate science as he hands our techno-future to King CONG (Coal, Oil, Nukes and Gas), the obsolete monster of a failed 20th century past.
Trump’s hatred of Solartopian technologies — solar, wind, tidal, wave, ocean thermal, geothermal, LED, efficiency, electric and hydrogen cars, advanced batteries, etc. — leaves the US out of the biggest job-creating transition in human history.....""...No commercial reactor has liability insurance, so the next melt-down/explosion could bankrupt us all, with none of Trump/Cuomo’s industry cronies held responsible....."
"...But now Cuomo wants to earmark more than $7 billion in public money, for starters, to keep four upstate nuclear reactors on line. One is the Ginna reactor, near Rochester; the other three—FitzPatrick, Nine Mile Point One, and Nine Mile Point Two—occupy a single site on Lake Ontario. Fitzpatrick is owned by Entergy. The rest are owned by Exelon, the nation’s largest nuclear power owner/operator.
All four reactors are in various stages of advanced deterioration and were slated for permanent closure. Without massive public subsidies, none can compete with natural gas or with wind and solar, which are rapidly dropping in price.
Entergy announced last fall that economic factors would force it to shut Fitzpatrick in January 2017. Exelon told the New York Public Service Commission that it would probably shut Nine Mile 1 and Ginna next year as well. .."
