Got a comment from a man, Mark Krueger, who lives in Victoria County, where Exelon's future nuclear plant is said to be going, and he also lives 5 miles away from the Goliad UEC uranium mining Project. He writes.
I am seeking objective information regarding TXU’s nuclear plant and how it has affected Glen Rose since 1990. I live in Victoria County, future site of Exelon’s new nuclear plant, and I also live 5 miles from the Goliad Project (UEC uranium mining).
Any information or source of information would be appreciated. Specifically, the questions I have are:
1) Have the benefits outweighed the costs?
2) Have any leaks occurred over the years?
3) Have any increased diagnoses of cancers or illnesses caused by radiation exposure been noted?
4) Would a nuclear plant be economically advantageous for a community which is already at the top of the economic list?
Obviously, other issues exist like the notorious spent fuel issue and the use of precious water. Again, any objective information would be appreciated.
Incidentally, if you live near ANY nuclear power plant or uraniaum mine, feel free to add your comment because it's the situation we're talking about.
