Sun-Sentinel questions FPL on more Turkey Point nukes

Eye on Miami has published a South Florida Sun-Sentinel editorial in Sunday's paper that refreshingly calls into question the FPL push for more nuclear reactors at Turkey Point.

The entire editorial is reprinted at Eye On Miami, so we won't spoil it for readers ...

But here's the editorial's bottom line: "Nukes might be needed, but renewables must not get shortchanged. "

Bury those lines, Coconut Grove tells FPL

Coconut Grove Village Council Village Council has unanimously voted to have the FPL lines along 27th Avenue buried and called on the city of Miami or Miami-Dade County and FPL to pay all costs, reports Coconut Grove Grapevine.

It's the latest in the ongoing saga on what to do about unsightly power lines along 27th Avenue in the Grove. Residents wanted the lines buried, but FPL says it's "too costly" and just wants to move the concrete poles back.

FPL wants another runclear plant at Turkey Point

Eye on Miami revealed yesterday that FPL wants to build another nuclear "plant" at Turkey Point in South Miami-Dade.

In a "friendly neighbor letter" supplied to Eye on Miami, FPL says that:
Today, we are are taking steps that will give us the option to construct another nuclear power plant in the future. We have selected our existing Turkey Point property, where we have safely operated two nuclear reactors for nearly 35 years, as a potential location for the additional nuclear power plant.
But, while the letter says it is an "option" an accompanying brochure published by Eye on Miami shows that they're actually talking TWO new nuclear reactors and that it's virtually a done deal!
