Editor’s note 12/1/16

 As Gov. Bruce Rauner and the Illinois General Assembly get closer to a deal to bail out Exelon’s money-losing nuclear power plants, there is not a peep heard in the Prairie State about the dangers of nuclear power. As the world was reminded by Fukushima in 2011, accidents can release deadly radiation, poisoning the environment. Nuclear plants are vulnerable as terrorist targets. And nuclear waste has to be kept isolated from the environment for thousands of years. No way is nuclear power clean energy. The “environmentalists” signing on to the Exelon bailout have made a deal with death. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
