Why are they wasting money on Nuclear power? The dangers outweigh the benefit. The fuel must be saved for 250,000 years. The corporate world cannot run nuclear plants, because management by their nature are morons, unable to think and see the future. With all the coal and gas in the south the moron executives are wasting billions on Nuclear power? The executive staff at the power companies are over staffed, over paid, and under minded with silly notions of grandeur. Use coal, buy and operate your own coal fields instead of wasting trillions on Nuclear power, duh!!!!
We all have a dog in the fight as this dog president and his stupidity continues his clueless policies. Shutting down coal company will cost us all money in higher energy cost. Why this clueless president is against natural gas is a joke.Some union mush be telling him to be against it.
nuclear is not as bad as everyone says it is . after the coal is gone and companies are sick of listening to idiots.then we shall harness the power of sea waves, the sun & the wind
then the world can complain.oh my not about the price of gas again, oh no i cant take it any more.
Why is it that stupidity always has a voice.If it's not weiner it's allen combs on fox defending the loser who told us how great obama 's ideas were.Obama is trying to kill coal by the EPA. If we let this fool continue we will need Nuclear.
When the meekly French build them, and produce clean cheap energy, and have for years we should be ashamed. Coal, by more stringent EPA standards, will create expensive plants, and production.
But the answer is...we need it all, and have it all. Problem is, we also have restrictive, socialist governance that favors the environmentalists that have been accurately described as more dangerous to our health and prosperity than terrorism.
Sayfu32: “. . . we should be ashamed.”
SO has had nuclear plants in commercial operation since 1975. Existing plants are profitable; they have good environmental and safety records. They are well-built in zones of low seismic activity. They provide 20% of the electricity used in Georgia and Alabama. Southern Company is taking the lead in building new nuclear power plants in the United States. It sounds like the light water technology to be employed in the new Vogtle units should raise these to an even higher standard. SO’s experience with nuclear was one of the reasons I chose to enroll in the dividend reinvestment plan; they’re still getting $100/m from me.
P.S. There’s a new licensing process designed to expedite approvals. Lets hope it works as advertised.
Seems to me that SO shareholders don't have any reason to be ashamed. Then again, sayfu32 isn’t a shareholder or at least he wasn’t a while back when he was badmouthing anyone stupid enough to participate in the DRP. The “we” he’s blushing about must be him and some other sore loser.
The process of mining & using coal for energy is much more dangerous than nuclear. How does France recycle its rods? Are the French that much smarter than us? Is it the cheese? The wine?
Sell my stock? Why don't we just close down the Nuc Plants and go coal or nat gas. Oh wait a minute a SO CO plant did shut down and no one knows why, becuase the dubarse executives don't have an automated system with real time feedback. Do you realize how many electricians and engineers it takes to change a light bulb at a So Co nuc plant- 10 it is a all day event, as the executives have totally f'd everything up with ignorance on a vast scale. Yea I feel real safe with these dumarse executives running nuc plants.
So co Nuclear Plant Volte shuts down unexpectedly according to news report. But no one knows why it shutdown. If the management at SoCo can't understand why a nuclear plant shutsdown then maybe the clowns should get out of the Nuclear business and go back to coal mining. The automated systems will tell you why they shutdown, ONLY if the moron managers let the engineers program it correctly and do their jobs.
If the executives have allowed an automated system to be installed in a nuclear plant that shuts down automatically without feedback, then maybe its time to get rid of the executives and let the engineers run the show instead of some clueless moron executive. Thats why they can't be in the nuclear business, too many useless executives F'ing around.
