The Surrey nuclear power plant in Virginia is running since 1973-4, with a sister plant, North Anna running since 1978. Who needs windmills?

Update:

Powers Washington DC if needed,

Update 2:

The warm water discharge from Surrey has actually improved fish stocks in the James river.

Update 3:

UMM, These plants have been humming along for almost 50 years safely, Let's replace then with better technology if you can find the money, but these Westinghouse Plants are the shits and roll along without fault.

    We need both -- we just don't want coal ,or , ultimately, gas .

    But whatever , we need population control more than anything else.

    And where has all of that nuclear waste and radioactive water been stored from 50 years of use?

    Wind has a 0% meltdown rate. There is absolutely no chance that wind power will ever resuktnuna catastrophic runaway rewction that renders massive areas of the surroubding countryside completely uninhabitable for thousands of year. And even if everything functions perfectly, it still produces waste byproducts which costs millions every year to handle, transport and store. Why the f* ck would you want nuclear power?
