Until just 20 years ago, federal law didn’t even accept that men could be harassed by other men. These men’s stories show we still have a long way to go. Even before the butt-grabbing incident, James Tepperwien said his colleague Vito Messina had come onto him at least three times. Usually it happened during target...

Inside New York’s Indian Point nuclear power plant

Buchanan, New York (CNN) — Stepping into the containment dome of Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant No. 3 is almost surreal. It’s like entering a movie set, but instead of walking by wooden props, we’re passing through an 11-foot-thick concrete-and-steel wall. This is the nuclear facility that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to shut...

Solar, wind won’t come in time in New York

Jerry Kramer is blind, deaf and dumb when it comes to Indian Point power plant.  It is always the same old story. Gotta have that gas since nuclear is going away.   The report he is so quick to quote has a second sceanrio.  That one spells out how renewables along with conservation, efficiency, demand response,...

Is Indian Point Pipeline Safe?

In February 2016, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo commissioned a study of the risks of running a gas pipeline through the Indian Point nuclear plant site. Seven months later, the state told the consulting firm preparing the $275,000 assessment to complete it by Dec. 31, 2016. More than a year after that deadline, the study...
