I wonder if this is what it feels like to go crazy. Not a little zany, not idiosyncratic, but utterly, looney bin nuts. Recently, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Moniz announced that our government has approved a $6.5 billion loan to Southern Co. to build two new nuclear reactors at the Alvin W. Vogtle Electric Generating nuclear site in Georgia. Yes, new nuclear – on our own soil.
With Fukushima radiation bombarding the Pacific Ocean and California turning into the land of slow-roast, and radiation poisoned citizens carrying Geiger counters while their cancer rates go through the roof, our administration has decided to build more nuclear power plants. And – they are going to do it with our money.
