Carbon Free, Nuclear Free on WPR

Charlie Higley of Citizens Utility Board, one of the 15 groups (including WNPJ) that sent a clean energy message to the state legislature and Governor last week, was interviewed by Wisconsin Public Radio.  Energy efficiency and renewable options "are cheaper, safer, and will quickly create more jobs" than repealing the state's waste and cost safeguards on new nuclear reactors, stated the joint letter.

Still, Rep. Mark Honadel -- the chair of the Assembly's Energy and Utilities Committee -- said, referring to new nuclear reactors, "It's very important to me that we open this door again."  The legislature may consider repealing Wisconsin's nuclear safeguards this March, he added.
