``Additional nuclear energy can help supply reliable, affordable power to our customers while avoiding greenhouse gas emissions that scientists have determined contribute to climate change,'' Florida Power & Light President Armando Olivera said in a statement.

This is great news. So when the plant blows up there will be plenty of oxygen to feed the fire!

It's a Win/Win situation! If everything works out well, we will have unlimited electric power ata reasonable cost. If it doesn't, well, it'll blow up and take Miami-Dade County along with it!
There's no down side.

Unbelievable...there's no such thing as a free lunch, folks, and life isn't without risk.

How many of the same whiners who will oppose expansion of Turkey Point are the same bunch who cry like babies every time their power goes out & they don't have their a/c, big screen TV, computers, microwave ovens, etc., etc.....electricity doesn't come from moonbeams.
stop the madness

If developers were not allowed to continually increse housing density we wouldn't need more power plants. But then how would the politicians cash out?

if this passes this would be devastating blow to Everglades restoration in the biscayne coastal wetlands and to Biscayne National park.

Like all of the other US, Japanese, Swedish, and French nuclear power plants that have blown up?

People still need electricity, regardless of how dense the population is. Denser population reduces energy needs.

Yo,

How about tidal power, wind power and solar power?

Jimmy Carter, president, had these all in the works in 1976....Ronald RayGuns, rumor has it, canceled them so the US oil / defense / energy plutocracy could join with the international bankers and keep the world oil cartel in business.

Too bad Carter lost, now, it is rumored, on the internet, that the unelected 'Neo Nazi duo' plan an attack on Iran after a false flag nuclear attack on US city, similar to their 9/11 attack. Do your google research and you will agree.

In any case President Hillary will make the world right again.

God bless the new world order!

Thay have all failed, despite government support and subsidies. If they were any good a Democrat company, such as the Shaw Group, would have developed them. Enron was against nuclear power and was the largest wind power company when it failed. None of the Democrat millionaires and billionaires were prevented from developoing those imaginary power sources by Ronal Reagun. Neither were socialist France and Sweden. Check out the real world some time. As for Hillary, she was co-President for 8 years and did nothing. She even had Al Gore in the Administration with her.

Tidal Power? We would then have people complaining about the reefs.

It will take DECADES, if ever, to recoup the investment. We will effectively be subsidizing FP&L.

I think nuclear is definitely the way to go. Yes there are risks but overall it is safe. The entire country's utilities should focus on emmission free sources of energy which would free up oil. Cars can't run on nuclear, wind and solar, so conserve the oil and supplement with bio-fuels for vehicles and have the utils use nuclear, wind, solar, geothermal and water sources. The air will be more breathable and the CO2 lessened.

Of course its safe !! Why would a terrorist target Florida?

There has not been one attack on a nuclear facility since Putin became president. Not one.

Actually there is a much longer history than that. There has never been a terrorist attack on a nuclear plant anywhere in more than fifty years of peaceful power production. That remains true, even though anti-nukes have been demanding attacks against nuclear power plants for at least ten years.
