Nuke News you will want to know.


Aside from the Nuclear Plants within the 50 mile radius from Wilmington ( Salem , Hope Creek , Limerick and Peach Bottom ) another plant near Baltimore (close to lower Delaware ,SEE ATTACHED) is planning to add another reactor to the site.


However, reality is slowly setting in.


WASHINGTON, D.C. * A coalition of environmental and public interest groups today called on Maryland regulators to place a moratorium on the permitting of a new $9.6 billion nuclear reactor in light of the nation’s worsening financial crisis and serious concerns about the stability of the company building the project…..

          Constellation Energy Group, which is seeking permits to build the reactor at Calvert Cliffs, Md., was tied financially to Lehman Brothers Holdings, the giant investment firm that filed for bankruptcy Monday…

construction permit for a third reactor at Calvert Cliffs is pending before Maryland’s Public Service Commission………Constellation Energy has conceded it can’t build the Calvert Cliffs project without loan guarantees subsidized by U.S. taxpayers………

Earlier this year, MidAmerican ended its pursuit of a nuclear power plant in Idaho after spending $10 million evaluating the idea, saying the project didn’t make  ECONOMIC SENSE....... ........


These  are the people fighting this project
