If you believe in safe energy and a less-nuclear world, we ask you to take immediate action on two urgent issues described below.
Actions in Springfield threaten to take away some of the hard-won renewable energy…
Remember when the publicly owned nuclear energy facility, Fort Calhoun, in Omaha Nebraska was trying to keep their facility operating and contracted with Exelon letting their own management team go? The owner, Omaha Public Power District, OPPD, didn’t want to reveal all of the severance packages they paid out. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1483 had to go to court to get a public entity to reveal what they did with public money. The flood that surrounded Fort Calhoun nuclear facility in 2011 and left it shutdown for almost 3 years really can be looked at as the start of a flood of events, pun intended, that lead to a waste of public money trying to save a sinking ship. Hundreds of millions of dollars spent fixing the facility to restart it, paying out severance to management, contracting with Exelon to take over and run it for 20 more years and the decision in 2016 to pull the plug after all, pay off Exelon and move forward with decommissioning the facility. All that over a span of five years. Nuclear energy could not have become what it is or continue to survive without the public sinking more money into it. Money that should be spent transforming the energy sector to renewable forms of energy. Note: The Cooper Nuclear energy facility, downstream of the Fort Calhoun, came within inches of having to shutdown this past week due to flooding on the Missouri River.

The Nebraska State Patrol twitter feed has some photos that are informative to the flooding situation in Nebraska. Scrolling through and just looking at the pictures one can only wonder what chaos a nuclear emergency in the midst of all of the road and bridge damage might look like. How would people evacuate? The Cooper nuclear energy facility remains operational and is not expected to shutdown, this time. With the rainy season yet to come will this situation occur again this year? With scientists telling us that weather extremes will get worse in the future can we expect this to be an annual event? ... See MoreSee Less
