    Vermont has been battling for the last seven years to get that plant shut down. Stating safety concerns.

    That's not a healthy plant. They don't know what they're doing, or even how it works. They've made statements on numerous occasions that have been proven false. Etergy bought it thinking that a license extension would be a cinch. They were wrong.

    I agree with the decision to shut down that plant. The nuke industry shouldn't get away with it like the coal industry did. 40 years operation for a 40 year plant was the deal. Time to build new ones.

    Here's some sobering information. A lot of it about Fukushima's problems and their 'spent fuel rods'. I didn't realize that one fuel rod weighs 2/3's of a ton.

    I think when you read through the article, the job they have yet to do in removing 1,300 spent fuel rods, you'll see how critical the odds are when it comes to not having even one error in the removal of these... you'll be glad some U.S. nuclear power plants are being shut down!

    Sleep well, tonight.
