With the earthquake and tsunami that crippled the nuclear reactor in Japan, I don't think there is a more important subject in the United States, than the issue of building more nucleas reactors in this country and the clean issue in the years to come.

With 270+ articles in my portfolio at the time of this writing, and over the years, I have written about 20, in which I have quoted directly from a newspaper article, because of the importance of the subject.

I've done this, because I've thought that the word on the subject should be known to a wide audience, and this is my way of spreading the word.  Issues in the past has included homelessness; medical issues; weight loss, quitting smoking;aging and so forth.

Here, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I live, we have Kirtland AFB, which is a storage depot of more than 2,000 nuclear warheads, and the base is located along the southern city limits of the southeast heights of Albuquerque.  With the recent earthquake in the eastern United States on August 24, 2011...and earthquake can happen in Albuquerque as well. 

The theme of the following piece has to do with the dangerous issue of nuclear plants and radiation.  The piece was written by Jon Cohen and Peyton Craighill of the Washington Post and the piece was published in the Albuquerque Journal on April 21, 2011. 

Article title; "Nuclear Power Losing Favor"

The article reads;

"A slim majority of Americans see nuclear power plants as a safe energy source, but nearly two thirds reject the idea of building new reactors in the United States at this time, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll.

The 53 percent who approve of nuclear power are a mirror image of the 53 percent who said such power was unsafe in the wake of the 1986 melt-down at the Chernobyl plant in the Ukraine.  But while there is majority support, more than four in 10 say they're less confident in U.S. reactor safety after the troubles at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan.

More...than over half...say the nuclear crisis in Japan has not led to a fundamental loss of confidence in U.S. plants.  But there is less support than there was three years ago for the new plants here.

By a nearly 2 to 1 margin, more people oppose building new plants (64 percent against; 33 percent in favor).  That's a shift from July 2008, when new plants were opposed by 53 to 44 percent margin.  Since 2008, the percentage who strongly oppose new plants has more than doubled, from 23 to 47 percent.  The poll shows the highest level of strong opposition in a decade.

Strong opposition to plants spiked to 59 percent when respondents were asked whether they'd support a new nuclear facitity within 50 miles of their home. 

(comment) Some people want nuclear, but not in their backyard!)

The perceived lessons from Japan make a defference among those who say they feel less confident in U.S. nuclear power plants.  Fully 67 percent strongly oppose building new plants anywhere in the country, rising to 84 percent against a facility nearby. 

Support for nuclear plant construction in the United States has not been particularly popular over the past 30 years, although basic support levels have fluctuated.  In the late 1970's, about half of all Americans favored building nuclear plants.  Public view soured briefly after March 1979 near-disaster at the Three Mile Island plant in Pennsylvania."


You can't see radiation; smell it, and it lasts forever.  I am totally against radiation/nuclear and the country has to find alternate sources of energy.  If you want radiation in your cornflakes...go ahead support nuclear...but for thanks!
