Another fire at a New England nuclear plant

As seen in the Boston Globe this morning…

A “small” fire was extinguished at Pilgrim Nuclear Station that supposedly started in a cabinet where safety equipment is calibrated. Rest assured, citizens of New England, because there were no injuries and according to the report, no radioactivity was released in the fire.

(Do you think they would tell you if it was?)

Reassuringly, the fire was classified as an “unusual event” because it took more than ten minutes to extinguish and off-site responders were needed. (Thankfully, these were members of the Plymouth Fire Department and not Chernobyl’s Liquidators.)

Hey good people of Massachusetts… WAKE THE HELL UP!

And PLEASE don’t forget that no matter who our next president will be, SAFE NUCLEAR POWER IS AN OXYMORON.
