A New Power Plant

They've done the symbolic "ground breaking" for construction of the new PG&E power plant at King Salmon. I can't believe there isn't anybody protesting this thing?

..."the new 163 megawatt plant will be more environmentally friendly, more efficient, and use virtually no water from Humboldt Bay for cooling."

It also replaces the old nuclear powered facility built in the fifties and creates jobs.

Who would protest against that?

I don't know but, seems to me, there's always someone protesting just about anything else built around here.

Oh, and as far as the nuclear unit, that hasn't been operating for a couple decades.

The nuke plant was closed in 1976 and they've been in the process of decommission ever since (those pesky fault lines). On a side note, I'm also surprised no one is protesting. There's usually one in the bunch that wants to complain.

I figured, if nothing else, some Humboldt Hill residents might complain about it restricting their view. There's always someone.
