So what are they covering up now besides the three million gallons of radioactive waste that they misplaced or the rotting "underground" pipes it leaked from.

That is why the plant is still operating...because all you antis are dumb and you think modernity is evil.

Tell me Mike, how does expecting the corporate world to be responsible for it's gross incompetence add up to thinking modernity is evil?

Why are we wasting so many resources running these ancient leaky liabilities into the ground at great risk to the public and the environment when we are seemingly so close to harnessing fusion despite it's disgraceful lack of funding?

Vermont Yankee is about as modern as a steam locomotive.

Yea but, it is welfare for nuclear and atomic PhDs...and all the other engineering PhDs.

Hey, have at it, with private funding as much as you want.

It is just too complex a problem for our state of development to waste public money on. It is just a boondoggle.

That's not the attitude that built the Hoover dam, put a man on the moon or in fact, built the leaking half century old relics that make up our rapidly failing nuclear power fleet.

Jeez Mike, you just sound like a ba humbug old man clinging to his buggy because he doesn't understand the horseless carriage.

Who is the real modernity hater here?
The reality

The reality is that allowing private corporations to rewrite the rules of nuclear power plant operation has contributed a great deal towards the public's distrust of science.

Plants like Vermont Yankee, of which there are many are a shameful stain on human progress. Fusion power my be a potential game changer, but because it is described as nuclear power most people will associate it with the antique down the road that threatens with the slightest of natures provocations to become a Fukushima in their back yards, radioactively poisoning their home indefinitely.

All so that a few reckless jerks can make a few dollars at the public's expense.

The current nuclear power fleets poor management and near total lack of oversight and meaningful regulation is an abject failure and a national and scientific embarrassment.

Vermont Yankee was not fined a single penny for their gross incompetence, not a single one of it's many representatives who "misled" state and federal officials about the radioactive pipes rotting underneath the site was ever arrested or charged with a crime.

Unbelievably, if you are a large illiable energy corporation, it is somehow not illegal to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste on the banks of the Connecticut river and lie about it.

Well,the example of the leaking VY pipes...the ideological group has taken over control of our government. This is the essence of illegality is happening all over in labor and business control issues.

I am just saying, fusion is the horse and buggy era.

And i will tell you another thing, you can't have have modernity without the middle class living in relative luxury and income security.

The creativity to imagine a future of middle class luxury ...

So dump fusion...build identical 30 nuclear plants at a time and four times our current largest size plant ...put the government in charge of this program.

These large projects are just too complicated for the typical corporate structure...it is like pushing against a string maintaining contractor and vender discipline.

It's about building a loving, transparent, powerful and competent government...an organization of us we can admire to be like or part of, the ideal of greatness and integrity we all can aspire to be like.

Luckily for us there are a few very smart people creative enough to imagine a near limitless source of truly clean electrical power capable of bankrupting the greedy private sector energy giants.

If we can just convince enough people that electricity, like good roads, a good education, medical treatment, clean water, clean air and basic food requirements, should be considered too precious and valuable to be trusted to private corporations.

Fusion is no doubt an enormous logistical challenge that the best in science have spent many years exploring, but the challenges are being met at an ever accelerating pace every day.

Unfortunately it certainly will not be the USA who first claims this enormous advantage. Our people lack the vision to see past tomorrows stock trades and today's Chinese phone.

We may have just enough time to cultivate the creative thinking that would keep this prize firmly in the public good. Something like fusion power should not be trusted to the private sector.

It is those nations with the vision to support this coming reality that will have a flourishing middle class. And if we don't get our sh1t together we will end up like every other failed state, broke, stupid, sick, hungry and hatefully superstitious.

There has never been a technology so reckless and shortsighted as fission power. It is a failed technology and it's mistakes will be felt for the next 100,000 years or more.

What an embarrassment it has become for science and mankind that the greedy are allowed to profit from such reckless behavior. The final cost for this gigantic mistake will not be calculated for more than 5,000 generations.

Think about that for a second, it was about that long ago that modern humans first appeared. The first stone tools only appeared about 65,000 years ago. Yet we continue to create this poison, some of the deadliest poison on earth, which is virtually uncontainable for such long spans of time, just so a few jerks can buy expensive things.

If the private industry makes a breakthrough with fusion, they will make zillions of dollars.

Well, fission power served our military well in all forms and it has produced a tremendous amount of electrical power...
