Vermont Yankee letter box

Where do you go if your life feels threatened and the people who keep the threat alive tell you there is no threat? The people who run the nuclear plant said there were no underground pipes filled with tritium at Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee. Full Story

It appears that fair and balanced reporting has again been demonstrated by the Brattleboro One-Sided paper. When people stop reading the news and cancel their subscription, I guess the Reformer can go bankrupt and cry to the State of Vermont for aid which they willnot have. Vermont, the greatest welfare state in the nation. Cancel my subscription.

The only reporter worth reading is Susan Smallheer of rutlandherald.com .

The other resource is the Facebook group
SHUT DOWN VERMONT YANKEE TODAY!!!

When a pipe bursts at your home, the first thing you do is turn the water supply OFF. The same thing is also true of a terribly leaking nuclear reactor!

The VT Public Service Board and the Dept of Health both KNOW this fully well. Yet they wait and wait... Keep in mind that for every day VT Yankee would be shut down will cost them $1 Million a day. Can anyone guess why they have not been shut down????

The Connecticut River is being allowed to be contaminated, and the tritium evaporates out of it and is absorbed through your skin and inhaled in your air and ingested within your food supply (where it is even more concentrated in food than in the inhaled tritiated air).

Citizens in VT are partying tomorrow over the shutdown occurring in TWO YEARS! You folks are being poisoned - quite literally - and they are throwing parties due to the senate victory that takes place over TWO YEARS from now! That is insane and also... quite... curious indeed!

Vermont, I maintain the continued operations of VT Yankee is NOT acceptable!

Read it. I think it is nonsense and I question your motivation in promulgating it.

My motivation? To save you and your loved ones from increased, necessary harm due to manmade ionizing radiation being placed upon our air, water, and soil.
I possess a working conscience and do not wish for you and your loved ones - for generations to come - to be exposed to radioactive materials put there by nuclear power plants and radiological weapons of war industries and their promoting and enabling government agencies.
To make a blanket statement that it is nonsense.... to object to the deliberate radioactive poisoning of our public health and environment for countless generations to come is... why, that is more than curious indeed!

It would be curious except it is not true. I don't need you to protect me. Why don't you go find a cause you can do some good by telling the truth.
