The left-leaning Center for American Progress has published an issue alert outlining ten reasons to oppose the construction of new nuclear power plants in the U.S. The list is a round-up of reasons typically given by those who oppose nuclear (high capital costs, where to store waste, access to foreign uranium stockpiles, safety concerns) and some rather interesting ones: U.S. firms won’t be building any new plants (“Because no new nuclear power plants have been built in the United States in over 30 years, foreign companies have more experience building such plants”). Should Americans not buy Priuses either, because Toyota makes them? Another reason to oppose nuclear subsidies: they “take money away from more effective alternative energy subsidies.”
