Is this more sock puppets and Corporatism? Is this struggle an example of the citizens loss of power in this Nation. Perhaps we are a Corporatocracy?

    Finally, a response to the topic. The people of Vermont are suffering from tyranny because of the attempts to override the voice of the people by Corporatism (fascism), and that is the enemy. The people have made their choice. They do not want the Corporation in Vermont. This is a case of big business trying to railroad the people. It is not about a popularity contest. It is a state that has stated that the Nuclear long term liability is too high. Get out! They are having a little problem with the Get Out! Nukes have been voted out.

    again, are you willing to show your resolve and push for Vermont to not buy any electricity that comes from a nuclear source?


    yes or no.




    Vermont Yankee is a General Electric boiling water reactor (BWR) type nuclear power plant currently owned by Entergy. It is located in the town of Vernon, Vermont, and generates 620 megawatts (MWe) of electricity. The plant began commercial operations in 1972. It provided 71.8% of all electricity generated in Vermont in 2008[1] and meets 35% of the overall electricity requirements of the state.[2]

    So when you get a new source for 71% of your electricity, will you only support a law where it comes from non nuclear sources?

    I agree, your post seems to be empty rhetoric.

    Why do you refuse to answer?


    VT is dependent on nuclear energy for 71% of it's power. You cut that, where are you going to get it from? if you don't support a law demanding no VT power comes from nuclear sources, you are doing nothing but showing raging hypocrisy.

    You should read your own quotes. "meets 35% of the overall requirements of the state." So Vermont needs to replace 180 Megawatts (620 megawatts times 35%). I guess they'll have to install 90 windmills at 2 megawatts each. Or conserve 180 megawatts annually. Or subsidize in-home generators to the tune of 180 megawatts annually. Or build a few woood fired steam generators in each town to the tune of 180 megawatts. I getting to like the lyrics. Can you play the tune.

    Re: The People of Vermont vs. Nuclear Power

    As somebody who lives in VT for most of the year I find it ridiculous that we are even having this discussion. Nuclear energy standards in VT are some of the highest in the country. Nuclear energy not only provides jobs in the state but also gives us a reliable source of power. The enviro-nut nonsense needs to stop in this state. We have what most states could only dream of. High energy standards, relatively cheap energy and some of the greenest countryside anywhere.

    Given what is known about the "radioactive tritium leaks, misstatements in testimony by plant officials, a cooling tower collapse in 2007, and other problems." I've read about, it is little wonder the people of Vermont want this facility shut down. Safe nuclear power is one thing and this outdated and unsafe facility is quite another.

    And, it only provides 600 jobs. I'm sure many more jobs will be created in developing and running the 35% replacement sources of energy needed while placing a much lower level of risk to public health.

    90 windmills? I doubt it. Think MWhrs, or megawatt hours. The wind don't blow ALL the time...how will we store the juice for when the wind don't blow?
