The new nuclear reactors — which do not exist, have not been built or tested, and even under the most optimistic scenario cannot be deployed for at least 10 or 20 years (if ever) — are intended by the Government of Canada to be installed in small communities in the north (including First Nations) and...

Unanticipated Radioactive Repercussions

Unanticipated Radioactive Repercussions

I have been asked to provide some facts about radiation from nuclear plants. A crippled nuclear reactor is dangerous not because it gives off invisible rays, but because it disseminates harmful radioactive pollutants. So I prefer to use the word “radioactivity” rather than “radiation”. What is radioactivity? Radioactivity is not a thing, but a property...

Terra Firma Article

This article appeared in the May 2018 issue of Terra Firm, the Newsletter for the Sierra Club Lower Hudson Group.   Replacement?  What replacement? Misguided Critics Say… Closing a nuclear reactor means another gas plant will open to replace it. We need to keep nuclear plants open in order to hold greenhouse gases down.  Why can’t environmentalists...

Response to ‘Burden of proof: A comprehensive review of the feasibility of 100% renewable-electricity systems’

A recent article ‘Burden of proof: A comprehensive review of the feasibility of 100% renewable-electricity systems’ claims that many studies of 100% renewable electricity systems do not demonstrate sufficient technical feasibility, according to the criteria of the article’s authors (henceforth ‘the authors’). Here we analyse the authors’ methodology and find it problematic. The feasibility criteria...

Indian Point: Next Steps

The reactors at Indian Point are not closed yet and continue to present danger to the community. Perhaps more.  The expert prediction is for more problems at the start and the end of a reactor’s life span.  Repairs are expensive so is refueling how will Entergy, owners of the reactors respond. The question that comes...

The End of the Age of Nuclear Power: The Beginning of the Age of Nuclear Waste and Decommissioning

Next Steps Going Forward   The Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition has worked for the closing of the reactors at Indian Point since 9-11.  A closing agreement, initiated by Entergy, was signed by  New York State and Riverkeeper on January 9, 2017. Barring unforeseen circumstances, that adversely affect power supply reliability, the reactors are slated...

Analysis of Replacement Electricity for Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant

NYC and Westchester form one service area, and uses a peak max of approximately 13,000 MW of electricity daily, depending on the time of year. Before deregulation, Con Ed owned IP#2 and NYPA (New York Power Authority) owned IP3.  Following deregulation, both units were sold to Entergy during 2000-2001.  Con Ed no longer produces electricity,...
