cation for pushing these old

Gale Klappa, CEO of Wis-

the Journal Sentinel last
May: “Those power plants
were brought into service in
the 1970s. No one in the world
has yet operated a nuclear
power plant safely for more
than 50 years.”
Klappa and the industry
see that as a rationale to
build new reactors. Actually,
it provides an opportunity to
re-evaluate Wisconsin’s ener-
gy needs and decide whether
nuclear power should be part
of the mix. Contrary to the as-
sertions of the industry and
the editorialists, nuclear en-
ergy is dirty, expensive and
dangerous, not safe, clean,
and cheap.
The reason there have
been no new reactors build for
35 years is not that Wisconsin
has a moratorium in place; it
is that nuclear energy only
makes economic sense with
huge taxpayer subsidies.
Rather than take it on
faith that technology will
solve the seemingly insoluble
problem of waste disposal,
leaving the current law in
place will provide a incentive
to find a solution before new
reactors are built to produce
more of the high-level waste
without knowing how to dis-
pose of it.
The current state law is
common sense. It has served
Wisconsin well for 25 years.
At a time when we are awash
in surplus energy, it would be
shortsighted, and perhaps
suicidal, to repeal it.

every day about the loss of
that relationship, but I did
have it. Many never do.
I challenge you to take
some time this week to make
a list of all the gifts you have
had and do have in your life.
I think most people who read
this column could generate a
very long list. Doing this ex-
ercise puts things in perspec-

sending a donation to Haiti
or a needy person. Or you
might invite someone to
share that turkey who might
be sitting alone on Thursday,
thereby giving them some-
thing to be grateful for. Like
a stone dropped in water, the
ripples continue to go out.
