I live in Orlando, FL and I just saw this article in Orlando Sentinel's Business Journal that a nuclear power plant about 100 miles northwest of Orlando could be shutting down due to the constant problems they've been having since 2009. What's even worse is nobody around here knows about this. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/os-cfb-kassab-pam-bondi-20110619...

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
