Indian Point under fire ( industry viewpoint)

Idaho Samizdat: Nuke Notes: Indian Point under fire: "New York is the first state to formally oppose relicensing of a nuclear power plant

At a time when the rest of the world is experiencing what is called a 'nuclear renaissance,' the situation in the Empire State appears to be retrograding into a dark age where all things nuclear are considered a threat, and often on an emotional rather than rational basis.

The relicensing hearing now being conducted by the NRC seems more like the medieval hunt for the unicorn portrayed in tapestries at the Cloisters in New York than a modern 21st century assessment of nuclear energy technologies."
