Considering the fact that the Vermont legislature thinks that extending Vermont Yankee's license would be a bad idea, and that it would rather rely on the grid at large and power sharing schemes to provide the one third of Vermont's power supply that cessation of operation at Yankee would vacate, it might be a good idea if they'd read this article.
