“The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has ranked Indian Point ‘in terms of potential human consequences as the No. 1 site in the nation.”
— Robert Stephan, Homeland Security’s Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection reported in the Journal News, March 23, 2006
Indian Point is“one of the most inappropriate sites in existence” for a nuclear plant.
–Robert Ryan, Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff member in 1979
Here are some links to groups with information on nuclear energy and/or closing Indian Point specifically. We also recommend checking out Stop the Algonquin Pipe Expansion (http://sape2016.org), as that pipeline would run within approximately 100′ of the 2 working reactors—which already sit on two fault lines.
http://www.stonypointcenter.org (The Stony Point Convergence, which meets at the conference center, is a monthly meeting of individuals and group representatives working on closing the Indian Point nuclear reactors; we have a working meeting, sometimes with expert speaker[s] and pot-luck on the first Sunday of each month. Please join us if you are in the area.)
How to help close Indian Point: Ask your municipal government to pass the Resolution for Public Health and Safety Regarding INDIAN POINT NUCLEAR POWER PLANT.
Click here to download the Health & Safety Resolution.
1) Print the resolution and give copies to your Town Board members and County Legislator.
2) Ask that it be put on the agenda as soon as possible.
