NRC Approves Two New Nuclear Reactors
As I sit here preparing to write Part III of my review on the Blue Ribbon Commission report this news comes across my desk: http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/nrc-approves-construction-of-new-nuclear-power-reactors-in-georgia/2012/02/09/gIQA36wv1Q_story.html
I am absolutely flabbergasted that, in light of the fact that no progress has been made for the permanent storage of spent fuel (disposal), the NRC would see fit to approve ANY new nuclear facilities. Somebody please, explain the wisdom in this action.
