In a major victory for environmental advocates, New York State has ruled that outmoded cooling technology at the nuclear power plant kills so many Hudson River fish, and consumes and contaminates so much water, that it violates the federal Clean Water Act.
The decision is a blow to the plant’s owner, the Entergy Corporation, which now faces the prospect of having to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to build stadium-size cooling towers, or risk that Indian Point’s two operating reactors — which supply 30 percent of the electricity used by New York City and Westchester County — could be forced to shut down.
... Alex Matthiessen, president of the environmental group Riverkeeper, said it was conceivable that Entergy could spend the money to retrofit its cooling system and then reapply to the state. But that would cause a huge delay, he added.
“For all we know, this is it — the beginning of the end,” he said.
MAJOR VICTORY!?!? FOR, ER . . . UM, WHAT: MAYBE FORCING THE CLOSURE OF A CLEAN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT THAT PROVIDES 30% OF NY'S POWER!?!?
THE LEFT IS TRULY INSANE.
BETWEEN THIS CRAP, THEIR SUPPORT FOR OBAMACARE, CO2 TAXES - AND THEIR SUPPORT OF APPEASING GLOBAL JIHAD - ONE MUST REALLY CONCLUDE THAT THE LEFT HAS MAJOR SUICIDAL TENDENCIES.
DON'T GO ALONG WITH THEM. FIGHT THEM.
VOTE GOP IN NOVEMBER.
