The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Renewable energy a better choice for Ohio, than nuclear bailout

State Rep. Jamie State Rep. Jamie Callender’s justification of Perry nuclear plant bailout falls short    By Other Voices,  Rosanne Grekian, 14 Aug 20, I read with some dismay State Rep. Jamie Callender’s Aug. 12 commentary on the need to subsidize the Perry nuclear power plant in Lake County (”Ohio and Lake County still need the policy of HB 6″). Mr. Callender’s “more important” reason for supporting House Bill 6, which he now wants to repeal and replace with another rescue package, was protection of the hundreds of jobs and millions of tax dollars associated with Perry. To this I reply: Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima, all nuclear disasters.

Perhaps Mr. Callender should confer with state Rep. Casey Weinstein, author of the opposing commentary strategically run just below his in the paper (”We need a new energy vision for Ohio”). Mr. Weinstein referenced employment of not hundreds, but tens of thousands of jobs associated with renewables in Ohio. Perhaps Mr. Callender could engineer many of those jobs in Lake County, should the Perry nuclear plant be shut down. Now, that would be progress.
