2010/02/05: Capital Times: John LaForge: Think nuke power is safe? Think again

John LaForge, co-director of Nukewatch, a WNPJ member group, in an opinion column in the Capital Times: Wisconsin’s reactors at Point Beach and Kewaunee spew radiation like all the others. In fact Wisconsin’s reactors have a particularly unsafe record of operations, when compared to the other 101 reactors operating across the country. Only four “Red Findings” -- the most serious safety failure warning the government issues -- have been issued in the history of the NRC. Two of the four went to Point Beach.
