Are you prepared for your electricity bill to double, triple, quadruple? Do you have a plan to replace those megawatts?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1309528


People like you are the dumbest fucks on the planet. Cheap electricity will mean nothing if a natural disaster, or otherwise, occurs and creates conditions like that in Japan. It is unbelievable that people like you can even function in society without help. What part of "mass destruction" don't you understand?

Re: Vermont wants to shut down nuclear plant, NRC trying to prevent that from happening
Wonder if the NRC is going to try to force NY to relicense Indian Point, too. Right up the Hudson River not far above NYC.

NY Governor, Cuomo, is against relicensing.

Cuomo lives in the town of New Castle (i.e. Chappaqua) which is not far from Indian Point. So he's probably genuinely against it.

"If the state of Vermont chooses energy efficiency and sustainable energy for its future, instead of an aging and trouble-ridden nuclear power plant, it is not the place of the NRC to prevent us from doing that."

Link to the article:
[link to sanders.senate.gov]

With the Japan disaster, and now the trouble in Nebraska.....this bothers me. (I live in Vermont). Why would they prevent it from shutting down? So they can ruin and cause problems with more and more plants?, and slowly kill off more and more people? Seems that way.....
 Quoting: amywood71605


Here, I'll make you feel even better: The Huffington Post reported this...

"The risk of a catastrophic release of radiation from an accident at a spent nuclear fuel pool is much higher in the United States than at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi plant, according to a new report from the Institute for Policy Studies. Spent fuel at many U.S. plants in facilities that were never designed for long-term storage exceeds that stored at the four damaged units of the Japanese plant. For example, the spent fuel in a pool at Vermont Yankee plant exceeds the combined total in the pools at the four troubled reactors at the Fukushima site. There are more than 30 million spent fuel rods in these storage pools in the U.S., the "largest concentration of radioactivity on the planet," according to author Robert Alvarez."

The NRC and all the others are in bed with the nuke lobby and many gov'ts. Don't rely on them to be truthful.

The relationships are symbiotic.
 Quoting: Waterbug


the war machine is the real power player in nuclear energy. They need them up and running to supply the radioactive weapons of mass destruction.

They need to ban all nuke plants on penalty of death world wide. Then the people need to quit the banks and work on barter and the whole house of slop would disintegrate in a year.

The notion that you pay less for electricity because it comes from a nuclear power plant is BS. The fact is you pay the same price as if it was a coal, water driven, Geo-thermo plant. Actually since tax dollars in the millions go to the nuke plant owners to compensate them for storage of fuel rods every year, we all pay more for nuclear power.

Oh yeah, feel TONS better now! haha.

Nice to meet another Vermonter btw! Where about? I'm way up north....Richford, and if you're not sure where that town is (pretty small), it is about 40 minutes north of St. Albans, or an hour away from Burlington (depending on traffic on I-89).

It just makes me sick to my stomach to think, "What if something happened to this plant?" Already has had some problems.

Some people, including I think Arnie Gunderson, said that the lighter isotopes I-131 and also I believe Cs-137 are not being emitted as much as at the beginning of the Fukushima disaster. But even Gunderson didn't seem to give any data to support this view?

I'm just wondering when it might be safe to start buying milk again, from the eastern US. Any more recent readings? This Forbes article is from over 2 months ago in early April.

Re: Vermont wants to shut down nuclear plant, NRC trying to prevent that from happening
Electric bills dont go through the roof, that is a farse. Colorado shut down its nuke power in the early 1990's and we have not seen the prices skyrocket, like 3 or 4 fold. That is a lie. In fact wind farms took the place of the nuke power, we have hydroelectric power, and clean coal and natural gas power too. Not to mention all the photo voltaic stuff going in locally that people can buy into with there local energy coops. So its a myth that a state cant survive without its nuke power. Heres a list of all the power plants that are Nuke, note what it says about Colorado in the list!

Well for starters ...instead of another bailout (qe3) how about equipping all the "on the books" residential taxpayers with solar panels for starter......if that isn't good enough then how about some legislation that would offset electronics and internet designs of these power plants....hmmmm get them solitarily on their own grid network via siprnet.......man, with 700 billion for that first bailout, every home in the u.s. ccould have a starter solar set powering off each other...electricity travels and bounces back...ground the grid and let everyones house power anothers.....no more electric bill...and it would create jobs...and it would keep those jobs via maintenance in which would pay for itself if it was state regulated...and the fuckin battery power that we already have and exists would store excess to keep the grid running.......wtf ladies and gentleman, wtf.....photovalactic lenses are virtually emp proof also....chew on that glp....5abump

They have this money. They are just not spending it for what it is supposed to be spent.

The first nuclear power plant went online in Russia in 1957. Since then, nuclear waste from fission, highly radioactive and highly dangerous, has been sitting at the nuclear plants waiting to be permanently stored.

There is no place to put it....

And it costs billions to decommission one plant once it reaches the point of being too old to rehab. On top of that, these could bring about life extinction on Earth should many begin melting down (possible in a total economic collapse or nuclear war). Keep in mind nuke plants in meltdown mode release much more radiation than do open air nuclear blasts.
