Nuclear Plants Coming to Texas

by Vinny

NRG Energy, is planning to buil eight nuclear power plants in Texas in order to help fight global warming. While the reactors are up to $6 billion dollars to construct, the state is going to assist by making tax cuts on local property, making guarantees that Texas will do all the clean up work after the plant has been shut down a long time down the road, and making tax exemptions for clean energy plants. But these plans will meet opposition. Many people, including former Vice-President Al Gore, are against nuclear plants because of the problems that might occur, but aren't likely.
Let's hope these plans arae enacted, and more nuclear plants get going worldwide.

I'm glad to see that the push for nuclear power continues.
