What rarely comes out in these cases, is how much is too much.
When all the screaming and demonstrations were going on about closing down the Shorum Nuclear Power plant project on Long Island. The reporting was very one-sided.
I attending a local meeting that a LILCO rep was going to speak at and answer all questions. They invited the public and personally contacted and invited the local public officials. Not one bothered to show up. Not even protestors. I suspect because they knew someone would be there that knew the truth about their many wild claims.
And, some very interesting info was brought out at the meeting about how safe nuclear power is when done right. None of which I ever heard reported in the papers.
Things such as the people living in Denver receive far more radiation than plant workers. And people working in Wall Street also receive more radiation in an 8 hour work day then if they were on-site at a nuclear plant for 24 hours a day.
Denver has a mile less atmosphere to shield it, and the stone used to build the buildings in lower Manhattan has naturally occurring, higher than normal back ground radiation count.
And the sushi eating libs will get far more mercury from their blue fin tuna then they would from being around any coal ash !
