The word in the world ethical questions in a promethean age by or m r. Vann strand the United or Hod at Church each of us has a slake in nuclear Power to he developed for individual consumer use the arguments May seem far out of the average persons Range of decision making but the consequences of where we go with nuclear Power will have a profound effect on All that we do it is becoming increasingly Clear that the revolutionary Power of Energy Supply is without equal in the last Quarter of this Century Here is an illustration a few years ago three of the upper Midwest s principle Power suppliers decided to build a new nuclear Generator in Western Wisconsin they spent $90 million simply getting the land and doing the Legal work to get through the incredible tangle of bureaucratic licenses and various approvals in the end. Their request for building that Power Plant was denied it is too Early to Tell whether the in vestment of $90 million will be lost forever but. There could Well be a reasonable suspicion that the rate increase requested by interstate of Over to percent reflects an Effort to recoup that loss if this one does to certainly other rate increases will or. . Van nos trend and if nuclear Power has that kind of problem getting through state agencies there seems Little question that lending institutions which provide the Capitol base for Power Plant expansion is not going to be excited or even interested in making such funding available each and every consumer is involved in the Issue of nuclear Power the three mile Island incident has caused governmental stoppage of All nuclear Power development for the near future accenting to Power company officials. Nuclear Power is the cheapest form of Power available according to academic scholars nuclear Power exceeds the Cost of Coal generated Power these Are just some of the issues that Are going to effect our future directly. How can we make decisions As a Public about nuclear Power when we really know so Little the argument Between pro nuke and anti nuke advocates is already a kind of Media event the pro nuke people say that our society needs the Power so badly that it is Worth the risk of a nuclear explosion to keep on multiplying the Sites at which such explosions could occur the anti nuke people say we must find alternative forms of Power that it is not Worth the risk who is right How can you Tell is the risk of snuffing life i7-year locusts Quot buzzing East state College. Paap a the All american version of the biblical plague of locusts is surfacing now in seven Eastern states As millions of periodical cicadas end their 17 years underground Quot but there a no need to says Stanley g Gesell professor of entomology Extension at Pennsylvania state University Quot they Don t bother people animals or vegetable the Large buzzing insects known As �?o17-year locusts Quot actually Are not focuses at All the Misnomer apparently comes from frightened american settlers who thought they were witnessing a recurrence of the biblical plague periodical cicadas Are found nowhere else in the world Gesell said. Adding Quot in a year like this when the cicadas emerge by the millions its easy to understand Why the Early americans mistook them for locusts the sight is spectacular and the sound is haunting and eerie Quot to those in the know however Quot comparing cicadas to locusts is like equating a cow with a cat Quot Gesell said Quot locusts Are a Type of Are related to scale insects Leaf and tree hoppers and aphids Quot for 16 years and to months the cicadas Are underground sustaining themselves with the juices of tree roots. When they surface for two months of Breeding they do not eat at All they just Buzz and Breed Buzz and brew a when the time is right in May or june Large numbers of cicadas Tunnel up from their Burrows.

Cicadas do some damage to Trees while they Are underground but assessment is difficult Gesell said a a it a easier to assess How much damage is done by the females laying eggs. Many of die.

Each group is made up of subgroups called which have different territories numbers and years of emergence Gesell said it is believed there originally were 13 broods of 13-year cicadas and 17 broods of 17 cicadas a producing on each year somewhere but some of the broods Are nearly extinct and with Only 12 17-year broods left today there Are five fallow years but 1979 is the year of Brood ii. Gesell said a one of the largest in both population and territory this years Quot plague a will hit sections of Pennsylvania new York. New Jersey Connecticut. Maryland Virginia and North Carolina. The various broods extend from Eastern Oklahoma and Nebraska East ranging As far North As Connecticut and As far South As Northern Florida. Gesell said. Out for 200,000 families Worth it to Supply them and surrounding areas with Power is the risk of paralysing a great City of Chicago with nuclear catastrophe Worth paralysing it with a Lack of electric power0 we done to know the answers to these questions because we think we on t have enough information on which to base a decision it is True that we do not have As much information As we would like to have but we perhaps know More than we think we know in making any decision in a situation where we have Little information. We need to ask our selves what kind of society do we intend to make in other words. We need to consult our system of values and ethics to see whether this society we project matches the guidelines our values suggest is possible we need to build on information we have to cast before us the conflicts we Are Likely to encounter we need to ask whether the foreseeable consequences Are tolerable and in line with the Best possible future we can create we need to see whether a particular course of action rings into actuality the kind of conditions that maximize the qualities of life we want pm i Hasi Zed there is no question it that our decision will make a difference there Are some very real consequences of our decision to go with nuclear Power we ought to decide now whether we can live with these consequences before it it too late to do anything about our decision As stated earlier the decision to go nuclear with the Tyrone Power Plant in Wisconsin has already Cost $90 million beyond that. The average nuclear Power Plant costs something like $2 billion of we built All 600 Power plants that were on the drawing Board at the time of three mile Island the total Cost would be $12 trillion dollars a about to percent of our total Gross National product for a Vear this distortion of figures because the Cost would be amortized is done to help people see that the Cost of Power generation is something taken out of the total product of goods and services because uranium is a non renewable resource its cwt would Rise at an increased rate that would be in addition to the Cost of building the Plant it is not difficult to see where we might get to the Point of spen Ding All we make to make All we make the coat of Energy might Well equal the possible Cost of goods and services As Barry commoner an authority in the Energy Field puts it. Quot we will never run out of Oil it will become finally too expensive to get the remaining Oil out of the ground so. Well simply Stop producing if we put All available funds into building Power plants and improving nuclear technology where will the Money come from to develop alternative forms of Energy obviously nuclear Energy requires increased supplies of capital expenses that increase is at the expense of developing solar Energy or Bio mass and peat Energy systems or perhaps geothermal and wind Energy systems that is to say there is Strong argument suggesting that the More we develop nuclear Energy the More we close off other forms of Energy development and enforce Reliance on nuclear Energy this would be counter to the better plan of developing a multiplicity of Energy alternatives such a capital intensive form of production would necessarily move away from a More labor intensive such As neighbourhood co generation systems form of Energy development these Are some of the major Aillet Lea to Lune sunday May 27, 1979 Baga 3 economic questions posed to those who advocate a nuclear Energy future these questions Are not the Only kinds of questions we need to face Reliance on nuclear Energy poses questions for the Quality of our social relationships the Quality of our government next week those questions w ill be considered the ethics of nuclear Power like other questions of this age.
