Plant safety divides Oyster Creek critics from proponents

Who would not applaud the benign-sounding goal of the NJ Affordable, Clean, Reliable Energy Coalition (NJACRE), a new lobbying organization. NJACRE's mission, according to its senior adviser, Richard S. Mroz, is "to educate and raise the public awareness about the critical energy and environmental challenges facing our state." ("Nuclear energy power of future," letter, Jan. 7.)

NJACRE's first emphasis, according to its Web site, is to support the relicensing of the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station in Lacey. Not surprising since NJACRE's start-up funding is from Exelon, the owner of the Oyster Creek plant.
