Entergy has left Vermont after 17 years. Ownership formally turned over to NorthStar for decommissioning yesterday.
9 years ago this week, Safe and Green Campaign organized then walked 126 miles from Brattleboro to Montpelier to say the time had come to turn off Vermont Yankee and switch to safe, affordable and available alternatives. They marched by day and gave public presentations at night, before sleeping in churches and host homes. Read their “Step It Up to Shut It Down” blog here http://stepitupwalk.blogspot.com/
As they walked, local media was full of the news that Yankee was leaking tritium … and Entergy was lying about it. Bye, bye, Entergy. We won’t miss you.
