Can't help but wonder just how much more money is going to be needed to decommission the VY site now that we've learned there is a radioactive plume of tritium underground and about to leave the site.

Anyone care to take a guess? Here's a hint....it will probably cost a hell of lot more.

Here's the real kicker: The stock market, in 20 years, may totally crash. The dollar may see hyperinflation too. Perhaps they should be required to store the decommissioning funds in a basket combining an array of world currencies with precious metals? The US stock market's overall rise over the last century has been in a period where America was the dominant economy on the planet. If it no longer is, in 20 or 40 years, the stock market may reflect that. And if climate change starts to wreck the global economy, the stock market may reflect that too. Stocks are far too risky for decommissioning funds to depend on their value.

This morning the newspapers in and around New York are carrying stories about an inadvertent 600,000 gallon release of tritium-laced steam over the Hudson Valley. What is the Federal safe level for inhaled tritium? Anyone? In the meanwhile, here's the full story as well as my "Ten Handy Evacuation Safety and Sanity Tips." http://fakerobwilliams.blogspot.com/2010/01/t...

If the Vermont legislature would vote next week to close VY in 12 and could over ride the Govenor's veto, think of all the time,energy money and weeping,wailing and gnashing of teeth that could be saved or avoided. Plus,the number of ignorant and idiotic posts on this subject would diminish and eventually end.

The governor cannot veto any vote that the legislature takes on the relicensing of VY.
