How in the world is it Nimbyism on my part,when you folks won't accept the waste, but it's a good idea for others? You guys are the ones touting the "safe" spent nuclear waste. It's safe, or it isn't. Or, is it only safe in certain areas or as long as it's not near you?
Lastly, when you drive around, check out the Indian River power plant or Turkey Point. I helped build them.
Oh, and FPL is a horrible, horrible company. You guys are getting so screwed, their system is a joke. No maintenance, substandard equipment, sky high rates and the next hurricane, 3 week outages. Great....
The truth of the matter is, you put Radioactive waste where it will not do any harm.
Where there is no chance of ground water contamination, like in the desert in New Mexico, where ground water ( if there is any) moves like several inches yearly.
If you are the great "native born and raised Floridian", then you would know Florida does in fact have some small amount of ground water (like billions upon billions of gallons).
This is not a case of I don't want the waste in my state
, it is a case of put it where it could be safely kept for years and years with no problems at all.
I said I thought you were pulling my leg, so what is the problem?
