Turkey Point: More Questions Than Answers?
The Turkey Point nuclear power station was built in 1972 by Florida Power & Light Corporation on the shore of Biscayne Bay about 25 miles south of Downtown Miami. It is the largest electrical power generating station in Florida and the sixth largest in the United States. FPL has applied to the State of Florida’s Public Service Commission and to the Federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission to build two additional reactors on this site.

Turkey Point Nuclear Plant On Way To Expansion. But Will It Survive A Changing Industry
A. As someone who lives and votes in South Florida (if you don’t live in South Florida, imagine that you live and work in downtown Miami – 25 miles away from Turkey Point as the Turkey Vulture glides), you will create a list of six (6) questions in rank order of importance to you about FPL’s nuclear power operations.
For each question, briefly (at least two complete sentences) explain why it is important that you get an answer to this question – now!
Use the following format to earn up to 12 points (2 points/question + reason)
B. After you have posted, you must respond to at least one of your classmates right there on the discussion thread. This is worth 1+3 = 4 points.
In your response posting, you must include
a reply to your classmate; note, a response includes a significant statement/commentary/additional example on the classmates’ post that adds something significant to the conversation…not just “good job” or “I like your post.” (this is worth 2 point) and
your own “beautiful question” – that is, a well thought out question that shows knowledge and understanding beyond an obvious question. Beautiful questions are clear, specific, relevant, and invite an open-ended response (i.e. not a yes/no question). They may be in response to another classmate’s question (you can’t reply to yourself
) or to something that they have written in their original post. Your beautiful question is worth 2 points.
