As usual with such pro-nuke junk science, that nonsense article ewe posted completely ignores the mining and making of the fuel (very Ungreen) as well as the waste problems as well as the fact that megadeath-causing Do meltdowns happen
"(except in Vermont)"
-the most ungreen thing about nukedom (besides when they explode and kill a million people like Chernobyl did, and besides the dangerous and expen$ive to store waste) is the big ugly pit uranium mines necessary to supply them with fuel and the fuel processing plants and other rad waste products which also create messes like Hanford
Cover Up: What You Are Not Supposed to Know about Nuclear Power
book by Professor Karl Grossman
Ten Strikes Against Nuclear Power
besides Wastes, Accidents, Cancers, and COSTS...
Not enough uranium Even if we could find enough feasible sites for a new generation of nuclear plants, were running out of the uranium necessary to power them. Scientists in both the US and UK have shown that if the current level of nuclear power were expanded to provide all the world's electricity, our uranium would be depleted in less than ten years.
Nuclear Power Not Clean, Green, or Safe
Greenwashing Uranium:Nuclear energy is not green energy
(for those worried about carbon emissions, the mining of uranium definitely increases CO2)
Nuclear power -- not a green option
It generates radioactive waste; it requires uranium that's dangerous to mine; it's hugely expensive.

ADZ Ironworker (Local 15) was on the Vermont Yankee site tying off rebar for the new diesel generator foundation.. The construction started a few weeks ago when the Vermont Public Service Board issued a Certificate of Public Good for the project. The new diesel generator will be operational this fall.
