These people are beyond hopeless.

Is there even a possibility of a 9.2 earthquake and tsunami at Indian Point? Really? Oh, and by the way, forget about natural gas too: no fracking anywhere in NY.

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.

Yes. http://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/~sykes/pages/EqCatNYC-Phil.html

It will happen. Someday. It has happened in the past. The Ramapo fault is active, just had minor trembler in mid-November.

This is the situation, with a single change in Federal law, the Indian Point Plant will not gain reapproval, all that is needed is a change in one regulation regarding fault lines:

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission only considers the threat of earthquakes or terrorism during initial licensing hearings and does not revisit the issue during relicensing.

ConEd cut corners building the plant, specifically cut corners in earthquake resistance superstructures. To save a buck. Back in the design phase in 1960’s.
