Pangasinan bishop proposes study on nuclear plants


PhotobucketLINGAYEN-DAGUPAN Archbishop Oscar Cruz has proposed the creation of a group of “capable and trustworthy experts in nuclear energy and in the operation of nuclear power plant“ to validate assertions that the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant is still intact, if its location is safe, and that the actual operations will benefit the people and help in the development of the country.”

Cruz said he was initially against the reopening of the plant because of the issue on nuclear waste disposal, but said after reading scientific papers and after hearing what (the Pope) had said about atomic energy: “I’m not prejudging the suitability or danger of operating the Bataan nuclear power plant.”

Mortz, ang aking buong akala ay panlipunang pagbabago ang hangad ng Pamalakaya pero sa kanilang hinihinging solusyon para sa kahirapang pinapasan ng mangingisda ngayon, inilalagay ko na rin sila sa hanay ng mga grupong patuloy na nagtatanggol sa pagpapatuloy ng pangkasalukuyang kaayusan.

Nawalan ako ng bilib sa kanila.
