Not In My Backyard, In Spades

If you thought the fight going on in regards to a possible oil refinery in Elk Point was something, just wait if John McCain gets his way (and Barack Obama as well?). McCain unveiled another portion of his energy plan for his possible Presidency and it includes building 45 new nuclear power plants by 2030.


Now I am no fortune teller but I have a strange feeling that the folks faced with having a nuclear power plant in their back yard would welcome a plain old oil refinery or coal fired power plant in their towns instead if they had a choice. And lets not even consider what will happen with the tons of new waste that would be generated, but I guess that's ok as it seems that no one else is either as the one and only site designated for that purpose might never open...
