Vermont Senators voted 26 to 4 on Wednesday to deny a request to extend the license to operate for the Vermont Yankee nuclear reactor.
It is leaking tritium like a sieve. And the operating company lied about the extent of tritium contamination in the local water supply.
Truly, the nuclear bunch is one full of honor....NOT.
The only true answer? Wind. . . Solar. . . And both close the site of use--i.e., roof top. This cuts out the necessity for long, expensive transmission lines. And prevents the homeland security issues faced by "long, expensive transmission lines."
Now, if we can just get rid of the notion of "clean coal," this country might actually become a better place.
