KY Social Studies Project Keep Nuclear Power Plants out of KY

The tragic events in Japan unfolding into Nuclear Plant problems, causing death to some quickly and death to many others slowly, makes nuclear power REALLY the kind of topic WE ALL need to know and understand. The live events occurring allow for many timely relevant and rigorous lessons.

Everyone should remember living at this time… But there was also Chernobyl and I was reminded of Three Mile Island when I read more…. This type of nuclear tragedy has happened before and will happen again. Everyone in our populous including students need to learn the basics at the very least.

Because of Chernobyl in 1986 and Three Mile Island, many people in the local areas surrounding the failed nuclear power plants were affected, some were killed, were caused to have slow deaths from radiation, had cancers develop and had babies born with birth defects or experience early deaths……..

Radiation is hard for students to comprehend since you can not see it with your eyes but critical for the public to understand when at this very moment in 2011, politicians are beginning to push nuclear power plants again since it has been 20+ years since Chernobyl.

KY currently is trying again, after never allowing nuclear power plants, to place plants here on KY soil. A new resolution has been passed by the Senate to bring nuclear power plants to our state.

Social Studies lessons galore including possible community projects to work against nuclear power plants in our local areas….. The local areas suffer the most when tragedy strikes so that’s the main reason to fit have the plants right here…..The tragic events in Japan unfolding into Nuclear Plant problems, death to some quickly and death to many others slowly REALLY is the kind of topic WE ALL need to know and understand.
