In 1958 my father, Colgate W. Darden III, moved to Aiken to work at the bomb plant.
He was a great advocate of nuclear energy and I grew up believing that it was a good clean energy.
In theory, it is clean, efficient and fairly safe, until the dirty secrets of what happens to the waste gets approached.
But if nuclear waste is so safe, why aren’t all the states clamoring to get it? Can South Carolina afford to have its property values plummet because nobody wants to live here?
I’d support all the jobs and new positions needed to get the Cold War waste out of South Carolina, not to bring more radioactive waste in.
