FW Star-Telegram weighs in

Opponents of a plan by Luminant Generation to build two 1,700-megawatt reactors at the plant 45 miles southwest of Fort Worth have outlined 19 issues, or "contentions," that question the environmental, public safety and financial effects.

They question whether there would be an adequate repository for the plant’s nuclear waste, raise the specter of a terrorist attack in which a plane crashes into a reactor, and contemplate the possibility of the plant’s huge water needs being unmet as a result of a severe drought induced by global warming.

Dallas Morning News

The NRC panel's three administrative judges, who heard arguments Wednesday and Thursday, have a narrow and technical job: to determine whether opponents have raised issues that merit a full, trial-like hearing. The judges are not expected to rule for several weeks.

The NRC commissioners will make the final decision on Comanche Peak's expansion. That decision is years away.

Plant opponents, including new and veteran anti-nuclear groups, want to derail the expansion and stimulate a wider discussion of nuclear power.

In a courtroom in Granbury, attorney Robert Eye told licensing judges that Luminant's application assumes the federal government will provide a permanent repository for radioactive waste. But Eye reminded that the US Energy Secretary has said the proposed Yucca Mountain site in Nevada is no longer an option. Eye claims storing additional radioactive waste at the plant is dangerous.

Eye: These plants as we now know from other regulatory requirements are vulnerable to attack, and the more spent fuel that's on site the bigger the target the more vulnerable we are to the consequences of a large radiological release
