Nuclear reactor applications filed

nuclear reactor
Progress Energy has filed applications with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to build two nuclear reactors in North Carolina that would be online by 2018 at the earliest. The NRC expects applications for 30 reactors soon.

The resurgence of interest in nuclear power is happening worldwide, as nukes emit no carbon, produce gigantic amounts of electricity and, oh yeah, they’re still working on that tricky long-term, safe storage problem for the spent nuclear rods.

It’s a given that more nukes will be built across the planet, and soon. So let’s build them right.
