Re: Calvert Cliffs, I Hate To Say I Told You So, But…
In an August 2009 post, Why Should Baltimore Care About A New Nuclear Reactor At Calvert Cliffs, Baltidome outlined reasons why Baltimorians should get involved with the Nuclear Renaissance debate and a third reactor at Calvert Cliffs. One point of the post payed particular attention to national security.
The post points out that, although there is no (public) evidence to suggest that Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Plant is a specific target, recent security exercises gone bad illustrate how poorly equipped the facility may be to handle a security breach.
Fast forward to today where news broke about an al-Qaida sweep in Yemen that resulted in the roundup of 11 individuals; a roundup that included one suspected al-Qaida member whose records show he worked at six U.S. nuclear power plants, including Calvert Cliffs.
So, again the question is raised, should we be supporting a Nuclear Renaissance in the United States?
