The wisdom of the CES with ZEC has been verified by no less than the world's greatest climate scientists--including NASA's
An escalating series of problems began with an enhanced inspection of the interior of the Indian Point 2 reactor during a
For the past 23 years, Entergy engineers have tried unsuccessfully to ignore, live with, and then stop a radioactive rain from the Indian Point 2 reactor cavity from falling onto workers inside the massive containment building.
In the time since Clinton left New York to become Secretary of State, Indian Point has become far more dangerous and the supply of energy available to replace it has grown sufficiently to enable its safe and affordable closure. Against this backdrop, when Secretary Clinton was asked recently what to do about Indian Point, she cited her long-standing concerns on plant safety and call for a "careful, thoughtful" approach.
In both Chernobyl and Fukushima, before disaster began to unfold, few imagined that such a catastrophe was possible.

Radioactive water leaked into the groundwater at the upstate Indian Point nuclear power plant, officials said Saturday.
On September 23, NYC will host the United Nations Climate Summit, one of the foremost events to address reducing carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions that threaten the quality of life for billions of people. As New York offers a showcase for how to have a vibrant economy and low carbon emissions, it is especially fitting the conference is here.
New York State is prepared to close 40 years of intermittent and costly legal wrangling over the annual destruction of billions of fish by the twin Indian Point nuclear power plants in the productive Hudson River estuary if the plant agrees to shut down during peak spawning and hatching seasons for the river's major fish populations.
The resignation of NRC Chairman Gregory Jackzo puts the issue of nuclear safety smack on the middle of Obama's desk, and then into the presidential race. That's a good thing.
