People don’t complain about things they think they don’t understand or fear, so, as usual, a massive new swindle begins based on an old one.
At 3 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15, unit 2 at the Darlington nuclear station will be taken off-line for the start of a 40-month refurbishment.
The $12.8-billion refurbishment will take almost a decade to complete and will allow the four reactors to continue operating for another 30 years.
There are many occult numbers in this story. I can’t think of too many other government expenses the go virtually unquestioned like nuclear power. Can you imagine how many real things could be paid for with this money?
