Norm Cohen, who directs the antinuclear group UNPLUG Salem, sees things differently.

"You have to take a break, take a step back and look at all the information that's coming out from Japan," said Cohen, who predicts a call for suspension of action on both permit extension for existing reactors and for new plants. "It's going to be a while before we get all the facts."

Cohen repeatedly has called for tougher oversight at Salem and Hope Creek, monitoring a series of troubles since the 1990s that included NRC-ordered shutdowns and years of federal concern about lax safety culture at the plant.

"Lower Alloways Creek Township didn't think they'd become a long-term nuclear repository," said Norm Cohen, who directs the anti-nuclear group UNPLUG Salem. "That's what they are now."

Cohen referred to the fact that federal regulators recently granted nuclear plants authority to hold that fuel for 60 years after a reactor's final shutdown, doubling the earlier 30-year limit, and announced plans to study the risks and benefits of holding fuel on site for 120 years.
