Does anybody really still think that nuclear power is
'clean' and 'too cheap to meter?'
We pay to build them, tear them down and clean them up..
and then there is the 1000 year commitment to
deal with the waste.
And we get to pay for the power we use, too..
Ain't it a great racket..?
Tony Soprano would be proud.
Judge: Government Must Pay for Decommissioned Rancho Seco Nuclear Plant Waste Storage
[link to nuclearstreet.com
[snip]In line with the results of similar lawsuits filed by other nuclear plant owners,
a judge ruled Thursday that the federal government must compensate the Sacramento Municipal Utility District for spent fuel storage costs at the decommissioned Rancho Seco nuclear plant.
The suit sought $80 million in waste storage expenses from 1992 to 2009, KERO news reported, although the Court of Federal Claims judge awarded only $35 million.
