People Yes, Seabrook No!

Ackerman, Suzanne
January 1990
21st Century;Jan90, Vol. 1 Issue 5, p8
The author reflects on the impact of the new nuclear power plant on the safety of the people and the environment in Seabrook, New Hampshire. She states that the plant will possibly bring the risk of meltdown and excess radiation, as well as the nuclear waste. She believes that operation should be stopped because there are still other alternative sources of energy which are environmentally safe and effective.
