TPJ: Protecting our environmental safety isn't something that deserves a flippant, dismissive comment like McCain answered Obama's concerns. Yes it has become safer but it is still highly dangerous and only takes one little incident for things to really go bad in a hurry. Remember Chernobyl John? Blah, blah, blah? How about Three Mile Island? Blah, blah blah? What about a possible terrorist attack on a nuclear reactor? Blah, blah, blah? And McCain conveniently doesn't mention that we still don't know what to do with the radioactive waste. I guess he wants to put it in Yucca Mountain in Nevada. What do you Nevadans think about that?
I saw a show over the weekend about this crew that fixed a turbine on a nuclear power plant. Well this guy said that the current amounts of nuclear waste in America would fill an entire football field 12 feet deep. So then imagine the huge increase of nuclear waste if we allow John McCain to expand the number of nuclear reactors by the rate needed to make us energy independent, which would be a lot and therefore a lot of waste. Maybe since it's so safe, blah, blah, blah, we can put all that waste in McCain's home state of Arizona or even on the property of his 7 estates. He should be fine with that since it's so safe, blah, blah, blah. I'd even be willing to give him a tax credit for it!!
Do we honestly want to elect a candidate for President of the United States of America who doesn't take nuclear energy and its safety seriously? He's too erratic and dangerously dismissive of some really important issues such as this one.
