Please read this post carefully. If you find this behavior reprehensible, we urge Bernie supporters to find another candidate before it is too late, and for everyone to spread the word.

Bernie Sanders knows that nuclear is dangerous, yet he had no qualms about sending Vermont’s nuclear waste cross country to be buried in Texas. Rather he said: “I rise in strong support of H.R. 629.

The final say for opening the Morganza lies with Trump appointee and head of the MRC (Mississippi River Commission) Richard Kaiser.

Waterford Nuclear Power Station and Storm surge watch. Waterford is protected by a levee — a levee which may have been weakened by Trump-MRC-Richard Kaiser’s failure to open the Morganza spillway and by the extra water flow going to the Bonnet Carre, which faces Waterford NPS. The Mississippi River wants to go toward the Atchafalaya, which means through the Waterford nuclear power station. That’s the purpose of the river control structure, upriver from the power station…
