First up - our environmentally challenged nuclear plants. As in, "the environment around them is going wild."
Regarding the flooding at and around the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Station - From ABC News, Nuclear Regulator: No Danger at Flooded Nebraska Plant:
That sounds - and looks - a tad scary. But our top nuclear regulators are on the job, and guess what?
Good news for Nebraska: Top Nuclear Regulator Tours Neb. Nuclear Plant.
I'd keep an eye on this until flood waters recede a bit.
Meanwhile, Wildfire threatens Los Alamos National Lab. Fires and floods. Must be the season of insanity.
In world news, just a brief blurb or two. First, the International Criminal Court issues an arrest warrant for Gadhafi and loud explosions were heard in the center of Libya's capital. Sounds like things are heating up.
Finally, French banks have agreed to roll-over their Greek debt holdings for 30 years. The deal could help ease some of the issues surrounding the Greek financial crisis.
And that's the news blurb for Monday, 27 June 2011.
