Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen said he will join officials in Vermont and New York state in appealing a federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission decision to double the time in which spent nuclear fuel can be stored at reactor sites.

The NRC extension to 60 years past the licensed life of the reactor was made in December. A petition seeking to challenge the ruling was filed with the U.S. District Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C.

    I support this action.

    Of course, if we do not want irradiated uranium and its deadly fission products, aka nuclear waste, then we should stop manufacturing it with atomic fission. Waste, by the way, is something you can throw away. Plutonium and a couple hundred other radioactive materials in this “waste” can never be “thrown away.”

    Maybe the new state administration should work on Sustainable Energy Policy Planning for conversion to a clean energy economy so we can cease the high level nuclear waste pile-up at Millstone (as well as mitigate climate change). This permanently deadly material does not seem to be going anywhere, ever.
