From The Oklahoma Daily:

Gene Perry, a member of the Norman Sustainability Network, an organization which seeks to educate Oklahomans about conservation, said he is skeptical of claims that nuclear energy would be cheaper for Oklahomans, and he would rather see money put toward renewable energy resources in Oklahoma.

“One major problem is nuclear energy is sold as an alternative energy like wind and solar and it is not,” said Perry, who is a former Daily employee. “We have wind and lots of sun already in Oklahoma; we don’t have the resources for nuclear.”

Perry said although he is open to the idea of nuclear power, he would rather see money go to furthering the development of renewable resources than the development of a nuclear project that could potentially be sponsored by subsidies.

    This past week I called in to The Peoples Business on OETA. I actually got through but they didn’t like my questions I guess. I asked why whenever anyone talks about the costs of nuclear power that they never include the cost of safe re-manufacturing the spent fuel rods.

    The guy who screened the calls said they were talking about the budget that night and to call back another time.

    What BS. The Representative they had on had just finished talking about nuclear energy himself.
