Georgia Stands Alone

Smokestack towers at night.

A reporter once said to me, “Georgia’s Plant Vogtle is what’s left of the nuclear renaissance that never happened.” The world will soon look to nations like China and Russia for nuclear technology if the U.S. gives up. That in itself is good reason to persist and complete construction of Vogtle Units 3 and 4.

Diversifying energy supply makes sense, the future is unknown. America could institute a carbon tax or even regulate frackers out of a job. But no matter what happens in the decades ahead, new and existing carbon-free nuclear reactors can ensure competitive electric rates.
