Comment on Tennessean article on firing of Watts Bar head
February 5, 2011
Congratulations to the Chattanooga Times Free Press for breaking this significant story. I had put my two cents worth in immediately afterward and wondered why there was such general media silence for so long.
But soon after the Associated Press picked up the story, it became of worldwide interest. The Chattanoogan did an in depth piece and of course, this article by Anne Paine has shed even more light on the dissembling TVA. It really is not about any particular agenda, green, anti-nuclear, wind, solar or environment but it is about the TVA, a federal agency that screams for dissolution because of its gross management mistakes and its outrageous debt that cannot be sustained.
And who must pay? Ratepayers and no other.
I have written about the TVA and document its many questionable acts and obfuscations. TVA still has not fully responded to my requests for financial data on their Green Power Switch program.
