A fire and shut down of Indian Point 3 didn’t even make the front page
of the New York Times,
and no mention that
Spectra Energy wants to build its 42-inch fracked methane
Algonquin Incremental Market (AIM) only 1,500 feet from Indian Point.
Plus an oil leak, all next to the Hudson River.
Meanwhile, Oyster Creek (NJ), Three Mile Island 1 (PA), and Farley (AL)
are all down, and numerous fire prevention deficiencies were reported for Hatch 1 and 2 (GA).
When did you last hear of a solar leak or explosion?
Entergy announced on Tuesday that a former supervisor, who worked at
the Indian Point nuclear power plant north of New York City for
twenty-nine years, had been arrested for deliberately falsifying
critical safety records and lying to federal regulators last year.
The utility said that Daniel Wilson, age 57, who was in charge of
ensuring compliance in critical safety areas, falsified tests and
records related to the quality of fuel in back-up tanks for the
emergency diesel generators installed at the nuclear power plant
which are necessary to prevent core damage in the event of a loss of
power. Federal charges have been brought against the former employee
by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, who was released on bail and could be
sentenced up to 7 years in prison.
Korea’s Doosan supplied that
that train-wrecked Plant Vogtle reactor vessel later
left unprotected sitting at Savannah port,
as well as parts for more than a dozen U.S. reactors.
And Doosan, according to the Korean government,
forged documentation that just shut down “a host of nuclear reactors”
in Korea, whose Prime Minister said,
“Those found to be involved in wrongdoing or corruption must be
sternly punished by the law, regardless of their rank and status.”
