"...we shall soon see if any liberty at all remains when the PSB announces their findings."

-Yes, hopefully the PSB will rightfully rule against the CPG for VY and we'll see our LIBERTY to be safe upheld and that DirtyBomb finally SHUT DOWN

there are many workers that are from outta State which that article ignores, but anyhoo...

"How many Vermonters does it take to run a nuclear power plant?"
-666
600 to form a committee to decide how to turn the ON switch ON,
60 to do some actual work like cleaning floors and toilets and making coffee for all the unneccesary others,
and six NY lawyers hired by Entergy to attack the State and its people for Daring to exercise their right to have a say in whether a potentially megadeadly DirtyBomb should be able to operate in their midst, and of course play down the dangers, make excuses, obfuscate/lie/distort etc.

yup human beings reduced to "human capital"...yeah I know.... VY is losing money.... but lets call it what it is... layoffs...what a bunch of corporate skull duggery! Entergy doing damage control big time.. issuing statements.."human capital management strategic imperative" seriously? Why not take the human approach... layoffs unfortunate but necessary for the continued operation of VY...

Here is another question for you. You are running VY and making a profit but you discover that you have 65 more employees than you need to operate safely and competently. Should you lay off those 65 employees?
Entergy needs cash to deal with the loser trying to shutdown a great power generating facility. Most of the workers to be laid off are probably the Mike Mulligan types of lazy useless whiner employees that are better suited to be running the Slurpee machine at 7-11, than a nuclear power plant.

"what a bunch of corporate skull duggery!"
-that sounds Conspiratorial

"Why not take the human approach... layoffs unfortunate but necessary for the continued operation of VY..."
.
.
- well let's see, if a human/humane approach to layoffs is 'neccesary for the continued operation of VY (Entergy's owners to keep profiting)'

and, we have 'humane' societies where it's deemed neccesary for the continued health and safety etc. of the dogs (and us all) that the excess unwanted ones should be Put Down

soooo, Oh, I get it, For the health & safety of us all we need to have a eugenics program for the ones causing the radioactive danger to us all, we need to PUT DOWN nuketards

Rising Tritium Could TriggerHuge Fukushima Blasts
Rense DOT com/general96/rising DOT html

The rising level of tritium measured in kelp samples south of the Fukushima 1 nuclear site is an indicator of intensifying nuclear reactions deep in the soil below the cracked reactors.

Two serious threats are emerging during this tritium build-up:- medical effects of exposure to beta particles on top of gamma radiation from the Fukushima releases;- and more ominous, the possibility of a tritium-deuterium fusion reaction that triggers a plutonium blast more powerful than the 2011 explosion at Reactor 3.

Apologists for the nuclear industry, including the Wall Street Journal, boldly assert beta radiation emitted by tritium poses no health threat.
This irresponsible claim is based on a gross underestimate of the effects of beta rays.

While less powerful than gamma radiation, beta radiation can ionize DNA. Externally beta rays can be blocked by a thin sheet of metal foil, but inside human tissues there are no physical barriers to prevent beta particles from rupturing chromosomes.

As summarized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency:“The main chronic health effect from (beta) radiation is cancer. When taken internally beta emitters can cause tissue damage and increase the risk of cancer. The risk of cancer increases with increasing dose.” Tritium is a beta emitter.

say what ewe want about the article and tritium & plutonium, but just as we almost lost Chicago thanks to La Salle, they almost lost Tokyo etc. thanks to GE Mark I reactors going Ka-blooey (just like VY's) as the three at Fukushima Daiichi Did

They should make him a national hero for staying at the helm and saving Tokyo. He took the high rad dose longer than anyone , no doubt also inhaling Hot Particle(s)
and they should admit that's going to be at least as bad as Chernobyl which killed one Million people...

Nuclear renaissance was just a fairy tale

guardian.co.uk, Thursday 11 July 2013 16.35 BST

The promise of cheap, low-carbon power – with 31 new reactors in the US – was based on rhetoric and obedience. Anyone who doubts that should read the new status report on the industry.

Where the hell have you been??? Entergy Louisiana powers NOTHING in VT & hasn't for years.

We do not need VY and VY contributes a whopping 2% to the NE grid. So the "VT will freeze in the dark without VY" horsecrap peddled by the arrogant VY workers has proven to be a big f'king lie among many more.

Entergy, The Company Behind The Super Bowl Blackout, Has A Shady History

A tale of $1 billion in misused corporate subsidies sheds light on last night's debacle.
By: Anya Kamenetz

Like many New Orleans residents, my parents own a diesel generator, which they purchased after Hurricane Isaac last fall left them without power for several days. As the rest of the world is now well aware, following last night's Super Bowl, it would be foolish for New Orleanians to rely solely on the city's electric company, Entergy.
