More Loan Guarantees



September 18, 2008 – Comments (2)

This should only add to the already unaffordable cost of nuclear power

''Now desperate reactor builders have upped the ante, demanding a wide range of financial give-aways and regulatory favors to jump-start a technology defined by fifty years of proven failure. The centerpiece is a loan guarantee plan to stick taxpayers with 100% of the liability for failed reactor construction projects. The GOP McCain/Palin ticket wants at least 45 new reactors for the US, with a price tag that could easily exceed $500 billion, all of which would be guaranteed by this bill".

Just say no.

*Please call both of your Senators that day with a very simple message: Take taxpayer loan guarantees for nuclear power out of the Gang of 20 energy bill. (note: the bill does not yet have a number. It’s called the New Energy Reform Act of 2008, but everyone will know what you are talking about if you just say “Gang of 20 energy bill.”)


*Please forward this Alert to any and all of your mailing lists.

Wow what an unbiased publication ~ not !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nobama is for Nukes too... tree huggers beware... lol...

As to failures, idiots and fools making the building, permitting, and regulation of efficient energy unfeasible without guarantees on billions of dollars in necessary infrastructure.

Everyone wants affordable environmentally safe power, yet you cannot look to find someone to do this on the cheap.

Properly built powerful nuclear plants are expensive, but worth it.

Despite your bias and fear.

No they are not, and only with the Blessing of His Sauciness could you deliver them anyway. My bias comes from the time I have spent exploring the issue. Here is a little parting music for you. Enjoy!
