So if you enjoy breathing in far more uranium than normal, you should support this power plant.

You may have heard commercials that sound like this:

Rah, rah, rah.

Jobs, jobs, jobs

Sis Boom Ba!

Defense, Defense, Throw Opponents over De Fence…..

What they don’t tell you is that right now you are not breathing in any uranium.  You will when this power plant goes on line.

What they don’t tell you is that right now, you are not breathing in any cobalt.  You will when this power plant goes on line.

What they don’t tell you is that right now, you are not breathing in any arsenic.  You will when this power plant goes on line.

What they don’t tell you is that right now, you are not breathing in any sodium or chlorine ions.  You will when this power plant goes on line.

Newark …. you have a choice.  Yes! Construction of this plant will employ some specialize union workers.  Those jobs disappear when the plant is built.   Operations of the plant may employ between 40 or 50…

But over the next 75 years, there is a good chance other employers may move in and hire workers too, without snowing particles upon your house, your organic garden, your pets, your children, you new car….. if you wait, you could have new good jobs without the particulates covering your windshield every morning….

Is this power plant possibly worth the decade you won’t live, if it goes into effect?  No one can really make that choice, so it is really up to you….

Do jobs for Pennsylvanians and native Marylanders, matter more than 3650 extra days of your life.

Only you can answer that.

And don’t expect to hear this ever mentioned in a commercial posted between segments of talk radio… on WDEL……
