ROCKVILLE - On November 23rd, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff, headquartered in Rockville, MD near Washington, DC, published two related approvals, representing safety regulation rollbacks regarding age-related degradation risks at Entergy Nuclear’s 44-year old Palisades atomic reactor in Covert, MI, four miles south of South Haven on the Lake Michigan shore.
Environmental Coalition Vows Continued Campaign to Shut Down Dangerously Age-Degraded Atomic Reactor Pressure Vessel
A 100-year-old reactor! Ridiculous, when reactors are typically crumbling after 30 or 40 years. Clearly, the NRC is a captured agency, not only allowing the most insane risks now but pushing even worse risks on our children and grandchildren. We need some whistleblowers and a study like the one that recently revealed what is probably a small part of Exxon's lies about their 1977 confirmation of the reality and harm of climate catastrophe.
