“The Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition (IPSEC) formed after Sept 11 as a broad coalition of public policy, public health, civic and environmental groups. We did indeed, initially focus on Indian Point. However, as our members grew more informed about the enormous negatives of nuclear power, we realized the ethical imperative of attend more broadly to those impacts. Our activities and submissions to government agencies reflect this broader role. For example, IPSEC was a cosponsor of the “Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident” conference (New York Academy of Medicine, New York City, March 11-12,, 2013) and the “Fukushima and Nuclear Waste Management” forum (Goddard Riverside Community Center, New York City, Mar 10, 2017). A sampling of Comments we filed includes {select list} . Over the past decade, and especially since the 2011 Fukushima disaster, IPSEC has transitioned to focus substantially on nuclear waste policy and advocacy of public policy which promotes creation of clean energy jobs and the modernization of the transmission and energy infrastructure.”
