Liberal groups such as Greenpeace and Ralph Nader's Public Interest Research Groups (PIRG) have trained their crosshairs on a new target in Calvert County, Md. At issue is whether Unistar Nuclear, a joint venture of Constellation Energy Group and the French-owned company Areva, should build an additional nuclear reactor on the site of two existing reactors at the Calvert Cliffs plant in Lusby. Thus far, their efforts seem to have encountered little acceptance, though activists are hoping their rumblings will generate a national public backlash against the clean and safe source of energy that is nuclear power.
