NIMBY? Not a problem in Gaffney, SC
Recent legislation has made it easier and faster for new nuclear plants to be built and come online, and since they're seen as inevitable in the face of our carbon free energy future - why not Gaffney? We've got to put all these new plants somewhere. May as well build 'em in areas of least resistance. Of course it'd be a little more convenient if Gaffney were closer to Yucca Mountain, but since transport cross country of nuclear waste has been deemed safe it shouldn't be a problem. And who knows, with all these new nuclear facilities popping up, maybe communities will be lining up to get all the extra nuclear waste put in their backyards.
Again, as I've said before, I'm not against nuclear power (or the people in Gaffney who want it) - just nuclear waste, which unfortunately seems to be a negative externality of climate change mitigation.
