Today Wendy Wilde “went nuclear” on Air America 950 and opened her door and microphone to me, and Ken, my Ken-pup that is, well… Ken Pentel too by phone! Wendy’s what some people would call a “dog nut” and graciously insisted Kenya join us — after a few tense talky moments and two bananas, she made herself comfortable on the white leather couch as only an 80 pound German Shepherd can.

Nuclear reactor licensing — nuclear waste — WHATEVER ARE THEY THINKING?

Only three House members voted against the Prairie Island Bill that authorized additional nuclear waste at Prairie Island, Minnesota’s 2nd nuclear waste storage facility at Monticello, relicensing of both plants… and the Mesaba power plant… it is insane, the legislature is delusional to approve this continuation of nuclear generation. There’s really no other words for it. There’s no way to deal with nuclear waste, and it isn’t just going to go away, it’s with us for how many thousand generations?

Here’s the basic info on Monticello relicensing and dry cask storage, quick before I hit the road again:

To get an idea what can be included in the NRC?s EIS scope, click here for the EQB scope.

Here?s Xcel?s (Nuclear Management Company?s) relicensing application for the NRC.


Here?s the Xcel application to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission for a Certificate of Need for dry cask storage of nuclear waste on the shores of the Mississippi River.

And here is the supplement to the Certificate of Need application.
