Recently, the Bartram Group of the Sierra Club and the Greenville League of Women Voters held their second seminar on "The Aging Nuclear State". David Lochbaum, from the Union of Concerned Scientists, presented his short commentary, "The Second Most Dangerous Nuclear Plant in America."
It was about the Oconee Station nuclear power plant and describes the many safety problems identified over the years (e.g., inadequate tornado protection, inadequate fire protection, inadequate high energy line break protection, inadequate flood protection) that have been largely unresolved.
Eric Conner, reporter for the Greenville News, who reported the radioactive water leaks at Oconee Station, spoke about the media coverage of environmental issues. The new environmental reporter, Tonya Maxwell, was also at the meeting.
Rob Sobczak presented a slide show from Tom Clements, the Sierra Club adviser on nuclear issues, on the status of high level nuclear waste from Europe coming into South Carolina.
This seminar occurred on Thursday, November 6, 2014 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM at the University Center (former McAilster Mall) 225 S. Pleasantburg.
