Closure of safe nuclear power plants in favor of fossil fuels

After the Germans, Fessenheim, then recently the Belgians ...
One more without technical reason which aggravates the RC for political reasons.
On April 30, the Indian Point nuclear power plant 30 miles north of New York City was closed. For decades, the facility has provided the overwhelming majority of the city's carbon-free electricity as well as good union jobs for nearly a thousand people. Federal regulators had deemed the plant perfectly safe.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a key figure behind the movement, said the closure of Indian Point had taken us "another big step towards achieving our aggressive clean energy goals." It is difficult to reconcile this optimism with the data that has recently been released. The first full month without the plant saw a 46% increase in the average carbon intensity of statewide power generation compared to when Indian Point was fully operational. New York replaced Indian Point's clean energy with fossil fuel sources like natural gas. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... lear-power
