(this story is basically the video)
I apologize if you cannot view the video, but this news needs to be spread. They are not telling us the truth about Fort Calhoun's plant...
Ft. Calhoun nuclear workers carrying in fuel cans by hand in order to keep pumps running
[...] At Fort Calhoun, where the river has risen gradually, the water seeps in through sandbag walls, electrical conduits and other places that workers had not thought much about before. There are so many small water pumps running to keep up with the leaks that keeping them supplied with gasoline and diesel requires something akin to a bucket brigade.
Orange plastic fuel cans are rolled on a cart over the catwalks and then handed off to employees who are headed deeper into the plant. Climbing over the sandbags at the entrances, they carry them in, and workers on their way out pick up a few empties and carry them out for refilling. [...]
At the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Station, which has been shut since April for maintenance, officials expect to replace by the end of next week an inflatable barrier that deflated on Sunday sending a rush of water toward the plant.
A 10-mile evacuation zone around each United States nuclear plant was set by the federal government in 1978, a year before the disaster at Three Mile Island near Harrisburg and eight years before the Chernobyl meltdown in Ukraine in 1986.

Over the decades, however, millions of newcomers have transformed tranquil woodland or shoreline into buzzing suburbs and bedroom communities. The AP analysis found that about 120 million people, almost 40 percent of all Americans, live within 50 miles of a nuclear plant.

Absolutely not, it's pretty easy to come on a thread and make accusations.
Now, if I were really Ron Paul....then you would perhaps have a point.
