Must Be Something in the Water


"Well, who you gonna believe, me or your own eyes?" Chico Marx as "Chicolini", in the 1933 Marx brothers classic, Duck Soup.
Olivier Kamanda posted an opinion piece on HuffingtonPost.com about impressions of nuclear power after visiting Virginia Dominion Power's North Anna nuclear power station. His positive reaction is not uncommon. U.S. nuclear power plants are, indeed, located in some of the most beautiful spots in the country, and they work hard to keep them that way. Environmental stewardship is taken very seriously by the nuclear industry and may help explain why public support for nuclear power is strongest among those living near an operating nuclear plant.

Also, if you've ever had the opportunity to go inside the North Anna or Surry power plants, you will find one of the cleanest and most professional looking power blocks ever. The plants are spotless, well maintained, with fresh and clean paint everywhere. You might be tempted to think its not an operating power plant. They take the pride in appearance thing very seriously.
