NUCLEAR PLANT POSTCARDS

Thanks to the imported oil energy meltdown of 2008, nuclear power is poised for a big comeback. The postcards below for the Hanford plant in Washington State and the Fort Calhoun plant in Nebraska demonstrate two different approaches to self-promotion.

The Hanford site photo looks like it is experiencing a full-tilt China Syndrome (although the back of the postcard explains that the menacing white plume spewing from the tower is just "pure water vapor").

The Fort Calhoun photograph, on the other hand, depicts the plant as residing peacefully, side-by-side, with nature. And the flipside of the 3-D postcard has an attached "simulated pellet of uranium" that we are told "provides as much energy" as three barrels of oil; one ton of coal; 2.5 tons of wood and 17,000 cubic feet of natural gas.

Obviously the public relations specialists at Fort Calhoun were better paid than their counterparts at Hanford. By the way, the Hanford site now offers tours.
