Nuclear power is not INEXPENSIVE, SAFE or GREEN!

QUOTE: "Watts Bar 2 holds the world record for the longest gestation of any nuclear plant in history, having been listed as "under construction" for 43 years. Construction was launched in 1972 and suspended in 1985, when the plant already was 60% complete. By then, despite an initial cost estimate of about $400 million, some $1.7 billion had been spent. Construction resumed in 2007. The total cost is now estimated at $6.1 billion."

If I was asked to predict which U.S. nuclear power plant will be the next one to have a serious accident with the release of radioactive contamination to the atmosphere, with my research I'd have to say Watts Bar. If you read this full article (BELOW) you will understand my reasoning more.

While this is not the only time I have read very concerning things about the TVA Watts Bar safety records and work environment being compromised, it is surprising to me that it is being talked more openly through the mainstream media. Usually most of this information is kept within the NRC Event Reports and the mainstream media refuses to talk about it. This is a very encouraging change of direction for the anti-nuclear groups.
