In a major victory for environmental advocates, New York State has ruled that outmoded cooling technology at the Indian Point nuclear power plant kills so many Hudson River fish, and consumes and contaminates so much water, that it violates the federal Clean Water Act.
Salem kills billions of fish annually , all protests by various groups have so far been ignored.
The truth is that these plants have been operating all these years against the law . The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)requires federal agencies to integrate environmental values into their decision making process.
Which makes the operation of these plants with their Ones-through cooling systems illegal.
We are still a nation of law, or are we ?
