Nuclear Power in Parade Magazine, Sunday June 6
Perhaps not particularly detailed when compared with other reports, but significant nonetheless was the appearance in the syndicated PARADE magazine this last Sunday of a brief article and large map on nuclear energy. The article mentions the push for more nuclear energy, and a statement from the Union of Concerned Scientists ("Hey, we're scientists! And we're concerned!") about emergency planning. Of more interest is the map displaying the 17 sites under consideration for new reactors (21 total) - if you exclude one or two. Brevity and slight inaccuracy aside, it's refreshing to see more and more mentions of nuclear energy in the many various print media and a map in one of those printed outlets showing an array of plants in various stages, and not just one or two in the "maybe" stage.
