Nuclear plant in New York City is “untidy”

“Untidy”…that means “dirty”, right, like those “dirty bombs” which we are in such fear of, our civil liberties are being eroded…?

A note on nuclear energy: McCain is for expanding nuclear energy projects. Obama is for expanding nuclear energy projects. Al Gore mentions nuclear as part of the solution to global warming. (Wonder if every environmentalist who praises Gore realizes that?) The Green Party is stoutly against nuclear energy. Some of our platform positions are below the article excerpt. -KW

Expert Panel Concludes Indian Point Nuclear Plant Is Safe, but a Little Untidy in Spots
[excerpts]
By MATTHEW L. WALD

A panel of experts hired by the owners of the Indian Point plant in Westchester
County to assess the safety of its nuclear reactors has found that while the
plant is safe, its relationships with its neighbors are “unhealthy,” and parts
of the place look so run down that it shakes public confidence.

The four-month, $4 million study by a panel of 12 outside experts was an unusual
exercise paid for by the plant’s owner, Entergy Nuclear, as a way to increase
public confidence as it seeks to extend the licenses on the two reactors…

Westchester County’s government has boycotted some emergency planning activities
involving the plant, at times arguing that no safe evacuation is possible and
that the plant should close…

The site, in Buchanan on the east bank of the Hudson River, suffers from “legacy
equipment abandonment and inadequate attention to infrastructure appearance,”
the report said. A co-chairman for the study, James T. Rhodes, a former
president and chief executive of the Virginia Electric and Power Company, said,
“The impression you get when you go in the gate is, ‘Boy, this is an old
facility.’ ”

1. The Green Party recognizes that there is no such thing as nuclear waste “disposal.” All six of the “low-level” nuclear waste dumps in the United States have leaked. There are no technological quick fixes that can effectively isolate nuclear waste from the biosphere for the duration of its hazardous life. Therefore, it is essential that generation of additional nuclear wastes be stopped.

2. The Green Party calls for the early retirement of nuclear power reactors as soon as possible (in no more than five years), and for a phase-out of other technologies that use or produce nuclear waste. These technologies include non-commercial nuclear reactors, reprocessing facilities, nuclear waste incinerators, food irradiators, and all commercial and military uses of depleted uranium…
