Comanche Peak Nuclear Reactor Issues Argued Today in Granbury (April 15 2010)

15 April 2010 at 6:49:25 PM

Here's Seed Coalition's Press Release about it.

"Despite limitations on what was allowed to be presented about clean and safe energy alternatives to more reactors, we were able to make a strong case. Hopefully the panel of judges will listen," said State Representative Lon Burnam, District 90 – Ft. Worth. "Nuclear power is an outdated and dangerous way to generate electricity. Safer and more affordable options exist and are in use today." Burnam is an intervenor in the case.

"Luminant refuses to look at the impacts of severe accidents. Their probability argument is dishonest. They paint the risk from accidents as low, since they don’t happen every day. However, all it takes is one serious accident such as a meltdown or terrorist attack on a spent fuel pool to result in catastrophe, "said Eliza Brown, Clean Energy Advocate for the Sustainable Energy and Economic Development (SEED) Coalition. "Accident impacts would be huge. Deaths and cancers would result from radiation releases, as well as birth defects from genetic damage. Luminant refuses to acknowledge these catastrophic risks."

And an Irony O Day

"At the same time that Luminant attorneys say that wind, solar and energy storage can’t be used for baseload power because it hasn’t been done yet, they want to build two nuclear reactors using a design that has never been built anywhere in the world. How’s that for hypocrisy?" said Karen Hadden, Executive Director of SEED Coalition.
