In a report released Tuesday, the Union of Concerned Scientists ranked an incident at Millstone last year as one of two of the “most threatening” safety lapses at U.S. nuclear power plants in 2011.

The nonprofit safety and environmental advocacy organization examined what it termed “near misses” at nuclear plants around the country that triggered special investigations by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

    Thanks to state energy leadership (we used to have four reactors), we all enjoy the threat of a Fukushima. Atomic fission is an amazing scheme that, on a bad day, can change from billions of dollars in assets to hundreds of billions in liabilities, which are officially indemnified by federal law (1957). Atomic reactor owners actually would not operate them without that insurance indemnification. Anyway, what would you expect from the current owner who paid pennies on the dollar via State of Connecticut Electric Utility Restructuring (1998). I wonder how their so-called “nuclear waste” is doing.
