Brattleboro Citizens' Breakfast Invitation - VY is Closing: Now What?

Brattleboro Citizens' Breakfast

VY is Closing: Now what?

The next "Brattleboro Citizens' Breakfast" will take place on Friday, September 20, 2013 at the Gibson Aiken Center, downstairs, hosted by Senior Meals. Doors open at 7:30am.

We plan to hear from Lissa Weinmann, Senior Fellow at the World Policy Center, and author of a recent article on Vermont Yankee ... going forward:

“While some celebrate and some lament news of Entergy's decision to close the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, we all need to work together to assure that decontamination begins immediately in order to preserve and create hundreds of jobs and assure the safe storage of highly radioactive waste that will certainly remain at the site for decades to come.

“While Entergy has announced it plans to leave the facility -- and the waste -- alone for 60 years as part of a federally acceptable decommissioning methodology called SAFSTOR, such a plan is unacceptable and unprecedented. We have a chance to do better.”

"Federal legislation key to jobs-creating, swift VY clean-up,"Brattleboro Reformer, August 30, 2013, also published in the Green Energy Times, August 31, 2013


Please do not hesitate to pass along this invitation to others who might be interested, but:
