Changes are comingIt seems that Blogger's servers will not allow me to make changes to my blog's template, I have decided to switch to a different service.

Reprinting a reprintThe Safety Valve last month went into its vaults and reprinted an article about the relative safety of nuclear waste as compared to the hazards of coal-powered electricity.

There is no such thing, because all liberals know about nuclear power is that it causes iguanas to mutate into giant lizards that attack Tokyo.
Now ... where is the concern for the millions of tons of highly toxic sludge and fly ash from coal-fired plants, which not only is stored in the most primitive facilities, but will be as fresh and deadly a million years from now as the day it puked out of the plant? No half-life for chemical waste.
