New Book on Entergy Nuclear and the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant
From Richard Watts:
I thought you might find this new book useful and a good read...Back in 2010 Vermont legislators voted to close the state's nuclear power plant, putting the state at odds with the federal government and the plant's owner--the Louisiana-based Entergy Corporation. Entergy sued in federal court and today the case is under appeal. Many think it will end up at the U.S. Supreme Court.
In Public Meltdown: The Story of the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant I spotlight the role of citizens and activists in forcing the vote to close the plant and look at the role of state governments in the decisions about the nation's aging nuclear power fleet.
Greenpeace's Jim Riccio said "This book should be read by all who care about their communities and the health of the planet." Vermont's former Governor, Howard Dean called it "A terrific and well-written look at what really happened in the Vermont Yankee debacle..."
