Vermont Yankee debate continues

The matter of whether or not Vermont Yankee is allowed to extend its state-issued license (if you don't recall our post on this a while back, Vermont gave itself a hand in nuclear licensing state-wide) is clearly not over yet. This article, and especially the comments added to it, really gives a good view of what's going on in Vermont. Basically, the anti-nuke people are anti-nuke at heart, and that's it. However, they also mistrust Entergy for having supposedly been much less than honest over the years. Further, they're sure that power-sharing over the grid with entities outside the state is the way to go.

How long will it take to forget the big multi-state blackout? Apparently in Vermont they already did. Straining an already strained network isn't the answer. I applaud Andy Leader's article and agree that the anti-nuclear view in Vermont is indeed irrational.
