Re: Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, I Hate To Say I Told You So, But…

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?

A company named Phoenix Energy of Nevada, LLC in Carson City, Nevada recently completed the design of a steam cycle power plant that is a regenerative steam waste heat recovery and reuse type plant which does not use any nuclear or fossil fuels, has zero emissions / does not pollute, and has all the advantages, benefits, economy of scale, reliability, dependability and capacity output capabilities as any nuclear, gas, coal or oil fueld power plant without most of the problems, concerns, cost and security requirements, does not require or depend on solar, geothermal, tides or wind power to operate, and can operate 24/7/365 in all climate and weather conditions and locations. This system can also be back-fitted into most existing steam cycle plants to reduce fuel comsumption rates, waste generation rates and emissions by 30% to 50% for the same power output and delivery. The power companies, States and Federal Government should begin supporting, developing and fielding this type of plant design and back-fit upgrade design to expand the Nation’s electrical output capacity while at the same time reducing emissions.
