Poland: Dispute over Atomic Power Plant

Poland: Dispute over Atomic Power Plant
World News Videos by NewsLook

Poland wants to build its first nuclear power plant near the German border. Protest is coming not only from politicians in Germany, but also from people living near the sites under consideration for constructing the plant. Shortly after the reactor disaster in Fukushima, Japan, Polandís head of government Donald Tusk made it clear that he still believes in the future of nuclear power. The first Polish nuclear power plant is slated for completion within 10 years. Two more plants are planned, and various sites for them are currently under discussion. One of them is the city of Mielno, on the coast of the Baltic Sea. But the citizens of Mielno fear such a plant could spell the end of tourism there, and so they have voted against their governmentís plans in a referendum. Photo Credit: JamesReaFotos via Flickr.

A lot of countries don't want this especially after Fukishima.

I should come up with a petition for all of us to sign against this, but I really don't know how.

I cannot believe that Polish Premier Donald Tusk would even consider to built an Atomic Power Plant after what happened in Japan and Chernobyl which is close to the Polish border and pollute the Baltic Sea and the beach resort. To this day people are still sick and suffer from cancer after the explosion. The environment in both countries is contaminated for many years to come. I pray that Polish people will opposite the construction of the plant. I can't understand the world-wide greed and luck of consideration for people and environment.

Far too risky - two words Russia and Japan. They have paid and continue to pay a too high a price for Nuclear Power.

I hope they can stop them - for their sakes and the safety of the rest of the world.

The world doesn't need nuclear reactors period. I wish the German and the Polish protesters good luck.
