“Get ready to freeze in the dark, New York voters, when the idiot environazi/Rat cabal that you sent to Albany and DC arbitrarily shuts down almost 30% of your electrical capacity. Elections have consequences, dopes.”
They’ll blame the rate increases on greedy corporations and Republicans. This plant is about 15 miles NE of me, never had a problem with it. There are however some hysterical types over in NY who live near it and think it’s going to blow up or something, and that it’s causing cancer.
The nukes in general are the safest power plants because of all the redundant safeguards. They are built for overkill. Fukishima OTOH disregarded recommended & required GE bulletins. Fukishima and Chernobyl are the exceptions because they didn’t follow protocol.
Same here in CT. I have friend who live within a few miles of Millstone and doesn’t care. However some people think it will turn into a mushroom cloud any second now.
I once swam off a beach withing sight of Millstone. Strangely, no effects or three eyed fish spotted.
