"The truth is like a lion. You don't have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself." St. Augustine
I found this quote that inspired me to write today about the Faults in NC and the effects fracking could have on S H Nuke Plant !
I have learned, finding the truth is a challenge ! One truth I can not stress enough !
"North Carolina's natural gas reserves are "much closer" to groundwater than in other states, and the rock in between is Not watertight and could permit dangerous fracking... chemicals to work their way upward and contaminate the aquifers."
I've been away from the computer a few days and trying to catch up with emails and news coming in about fracking & Shearon Harris Nuke Plant.
The Nuke Plant ,It had a Shut down Again because it Cracked !
Yes again ! Thurs AM , I went to Greensboro to help my mom ... I had heard nothing on the radio about the plant shutting down? As soon as I arrived ,Mom knowing I lived near SH asked me what I'd heard? I said nothing !
So I borrowed her computer (turtle slow) to do research... the first thing I did was search Wiki for info on the plant itself...
It opened my eyes quick ! It told details on the Many other shutdowns since it opened !
I saw lots but I was not able to save the info at the time !
NOW it seems since Friday someone has went in and edited the Wiki and there is now No details on the other shutdowns ??? (so I will have to dig for the Truth)
All the info they had today is this below ?
On May 16 2013, Shearon Harris Unit 1 initiated an unplanned shutdown when reviews of ultrasonic data from a maintenance shutdown in spring 2012 determined a 1/4" crack was inside the Reactor Pressure Vessel Head.  The crack is attributed to water stress corrosion cracking. Due to high radiation levels, the repairs will require complete robotic repair. Outside specialists will likely be used to perform this work.
My home is about 12 miles from the plant but I have 2 sons ,grandchildren , their families , friends and around 100,000 other PEOPLE that live less than 10 miles to this thing, I am concerned about too!
this is the info I got from Wiki today ...
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission defines two emergency planning zones around nuclear power plants: a plume exposure pathway zone with a radius of 10 miles (16 km), concerned primarily with exposure to, and inhalation of, airborne radioactive contamination, and an ingestion pathway zone of about 50 miles (80 km), concerned primarily with ingestion of food and liquid contaminated by radioactivity.
The 2010 U.S. population within 10 miles (16 km) of Shearon Harris was 96,401, an increase of 62.6 percent in a decade, according to an analysis of U.S. Census data for msnbc.com. The 2010 U.S. population within 50 miles (80 km) was 2,562,573, an increase of 26.0 percent since 2000. Cities within 50 miles include Raleigh (21 miles to city center), Durham (24 miles to city center), Fayetteville (39 miles to city center).
Well I decided I would do a search using these words " Shearon Harris fracking earthquake" to see what came up in the news ? I found a Lot !
1st I found this .
For most of his life Charlie Ritter worked as an aerospace design engineer and did all he could to ensure that planes didn’t fall from the sky.
Now 67 and retired in western Cary, he is dedicated to a new safety mission: protecting North Carolina from the hazards of fracking.
My blood got boiling this morning as I sipped my coffee and read a comment from Lee Co commissioner and MEC Chair Jim Womack /James Womadison / want to be ruler ...
in response to this letter to the Editor in The Sanford Herald
LETTER: Those at risk need to start talking
What would likely happen should we have a large earthquake due to the injection wells? You all know that Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant and Jordan Lake are located on or near the fault line. If we have a large quake, will the nuclear power plant survive? Probably, since it was built by engineers who were aware of the fault line. Jordan Lake will be in a more dangerous position because it contains 14,000 acres of water and it has a earth dam. If this dam breaks, Sanford will be half underwater; Lillington will be wiped out completely ... This could be huge, even if the nuclear plant survives. If the nuclear power plant is damaged badly, it will affect 2.5 million people living in a 50-mile radius.
Those of you who are at risk need to start talking to whomever is in charge.
I wrote a comment there too and hope many other Concerned Citizens will too.
Well I need to get off here and get out in the garden to burn off the anger but it is raining...
So I guess I will just have to wait and look for more truth ....
