Ready for some Nuclear radiation and nuclear cancer in the state of Georgia? President Obama announced $8 billion in loan guarantees Tuesday to build a new nuclear power plant in Georgia, part of the White House push for new jobs from clean-energy technology. But is Nuclear Power Safe? Let's talk about Nuclear Energy plans of Barack Obama? A new nuclear power plant in Georgia? Is this good for America? Has Obama forgot about the disasters that took place at Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania in 1979 and Chernobyl in Ukraine in 1986? How about Three Mile Island accident that was a partial core meltdown of a pressurized water reactor. It resulted in the release of 43,000 curies of krypton and 20 curies of iodine-131 into the environment. How about the Chernobyl disaster that reached a level 7 (major accident), according to the International Nuclear Event Scale. You remember how following an initial steam explosion that killed two people, the reactor was destroyed and nuclear fallout was spread around the area. It was necessary to evacuate 600,000 people, and an estimated 4,000 died from radiation-induced cancers. Let's talk about it tonight on the slugfest, "If you can handle the truth."
