SUNY to Investigate Nuclear Energy Curriculum

From Mid Hudson News:

State Assemblyman Joel Miller of Poughkeepsie has proposed a college curriculum be developed to train students in the field of nuclear energy.

Miller, a Poughkeepsie Republican, met recently with State University of New York officials to discuss his proposal to establish a school or curriculum along with other colleges and private businesses, to offer courses in nuclear science, nuclear engineering, civil engineering and other related fields.

“It will not only produce the people we need to advance into the nuclear age, which we have been hiding from for the last 35 years, but it also advances medicine. It would be very good for the economy of New York State,” he said.

Miller, who noted officials of Indian Point owner Entergy were at the meeting, said his idea was well-taken by the SUNY officials.

Look at slide 22 at:

Gov Elliot Spitzer calls nuclear dirty energy. look at what's on his clean energy list and tell me he's not getting money from natural gas and "clean coal".

He'll never allow SUNY to teach nuclear engineering unless it's to shut down Indian Point.

As long as you vote Democrat, these are the kinds of people whom you put into office.
