Lawmaker seeks to end nuclear fee | Dec. 6

Political forces hard to upset

Nuclear power is a failed 20th century technology that has survived on massive government subsidies since its inception. The "advance cost recovery fee" is simply the latest in a long line of industry-backed political efforts to shift the enormous costs off the utility companies and onto the general public.

There are safer, cleaner, cheaper ways to diversify Florida's energy mix (energy efficiency, distributed solar) that would be rapidly adopted if free-market forces were allowed to operate. I wish state Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasi­linda success in her effort to end this subsidy.

Thomas Eppes, Thonotosassa
