From the Frontlines of Progress Energy’s Push for Two New Nuke Plants in Florida
Progress Energy, like a giant stone juggernaut, is trying to steamroll over Florida residents by building two new nuclear power plants in Levy County despite the recent Fukushima disaster, warnings from environmentalists that the strain on the aquifer and the environment will be too great, and local residents who are ‘ just saying no’.

Previously, at a January 12th hearing at the Plantation Inn in Crystal River, citizens voiced an overwhelming disdain for the construction of two nuclear plants, and they were not alone; the Ecology Party of Florida and the Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) voiced similar concerns.

At this same hearing, local elected officials voted unanimously in favor of the construction of two new nuclear plants.

Thorium ( /ˈθɔəriəm/ THOHR-ee-əm) is a natural radioactive chemical element with the symbol Th and atomic number 90. It was discovered in 1828 and named after Thor, the Norse god of thunder.

In nature, virtually all thorium is found as thorium-232, and it decays by emitting an alpha particle, and has a half-life of about 14.05 billion years (other, trace-level isotopes of thorium are short-lived intermediates of decay chains). It is estimated to be about four times more abundant than uranium in the Earth's crust and is a by-product of the extraction of rare earths from monazite sands. Thorium was formerly used commonly as (for example) the light source in gas mantles and as an alloying material, but these applications have declined due to concerns about its radioactivity.

Canada, Germany, India, Netherlands, United Kingdom and the United States have used thorium in various experimental and power reactors as fuel.[2] There is a growing interest in developing thorium fuel cycle for various reasons, including its safety benefits, its high absolute abundance and relative abundance compared to uranium.[2] India's three stage nuclear power programme is possibly the most well known and well funded of such efforts.

they need to shut them all down
and stop building anymore
