Comment: Nuclear power doesn't have a place in a safe and clean sustainable future. Not only is it unnecessarily expensive compared to cleaner alternatives, it's also equally as dangerous through the showcasing of numerous catastrophic disasters across the world. The county government has also failed to avow to the costs it has taken to create a partnership with a private organization, nor is willing to disclose any details on their practices and qualities as a nuclear power provider; So much for any promised transparency unless if it's to make up for exposure right?
Just because nuclear pollution is invisible doesn't at all go on to mean that it's clean, this is another concern that hasn't been met with clarification from our county government. Nuclear waste must have a place to go, and unfortunately it brings about long lasting environmental damage and health implications, twice more if incorrectly handled. Every waste dump in the U.S. leaks radiation into the environment, and nuclear plants themselves are running out of ways to store highly radioactive waste on site. The site selected to store the U.S.’s radioactive waste Yucca Mountain in Nevada is both volcanically and seismically active.
As aforementioned, new nuclear plants are more expensive and take longer to build than renewable energy sources like wind or solar. If we are to avoid the most damaging impacts of climate change, we need solutions that are fast and affordable. Nuclear power is neither. Nuclear power plants are prompting Wall Street to call new nuclear a “bet the farm” risk. Every nuclear plant under construction in the United States is well behind schedule and at least $1 billion over budget. This is even before taking into account the astounding cleanup and health costs caused by radioactive waste pollution and nuclear meltdowns. Cleaning up Fukushima, if ever possible, will cost at least $100 billion and could be more than double that.
To conclude this campaign message, the councilman of District 3 Nikolai Georgiev has had nothing to say about the severe implications and ramifications brought upon the neighboring town of Blueberry by this Nuclear Power Plant development. We're having a councilman who won by unanimous decision and not by a vote, someone whom is also a member of the Rationalist Homeland Workers Party supporting this development without a single meeting held with the districts residences. This ultimately suggests that this development has been met with bias and lies instead of real concerns from the people who the councilman should be serving the interests of instead of their own.
We can do better than trading off one disaster for another. The nuclear age is over and the age of renewables has begun. Don't let your county government tell you otherwise with a lack of transparency, continue your support for Greenpeace by spreading your disapproval for Nuclear in Los Santos.
