New Horror for the Hudson

This isn't new news, but Congressman Chris Gibson wants to build a nuclear power plant and nuclear waste reprocessing facility in the 20th Congressional District and thinks the Hudson River might be a good place to site such a facility. No nuclear plants have been built in New York since the meltdown at Three Mile Island (shown above) in 1979, but Gibson says times have changed. "It's clean, it's good for the environment, it's safe," says Gibson of nuclear energy. There's an article on the subject worth reading in today's Saratogian: "Rep. Gibson pushes for use of nuclear power in 20th Congressional District."  

Thanks to Ruth Moser for bringing this article to our attention.

  1. Poor Gibson. The GOP has given him an early loyalty test, asking him to lead what can only be fool's errand.
