Yesterday there was a letter in the Miami Herald about how great Nukes are for economic opportunity. The letter was written by Chirsty Todd Whitman and Mayor of Homestead Steve Bateman.
I wrote about Christine Todd Whitman in 2007. She is nothing more than a paid booster for the nuclear industry but she signs her letter former EPA administrator as if this is some sort of official position, she hasn't been there for 10 years. She now heads her energy greenwash group (never saw so many "green" photos on a website since Sierra Club) Whitman Strategy Group.
|From Todd Whitman's website, kind of clever even though nauseating.|
I spoke to a Councilperson in the City of Homestead, who said the City has no official position on nuclear energy, or the FPL expansion and that Bateman is not speaking on behalf of the city on such subjects (wasn't he also at the FPL hearing at the County Commission the other day in support of zoning changes for FPL? Did the city vote to support the zoning changes? No).
When did the City of Homestead vote "that nuclear energy is a vital part of both Florida and our nation's energy and economic future"? Did they vote to say that "This is an exciting period of growth and progress in nuclear energy..." Exactly who in Homestead supports the views articulated in the letter?
