A Nuclear Error, But I Have No Fear

Things we learned today: There was a "blast" at the South Texas Nuclear Plant in Bay City.

Not to worry, though. A nuclear-plant blast can have "no environment impact," is the second thing we learned. Generally, putting the words "nuclear" and "blast" together would indicate to us some type of environmental impact, but we're not experts.

Or maybe it's just a mistake by a headline writer, since the linked blog item says the feds have found no environmental impacts that would keep it from issuing approval to expanding the STNP.

Not blowing it up, just expanding it. So you can breathe easy and have no fear, for Bay City's calling and you live by the river.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
