Hey, New York City! Is it Smart to Put a Methane Pipeline
Near Indian Point?
The federal government has approved plans to put a 42" high pressure "natural gas" pipeline near the Indian Point nuclear power plant in
Buchanan. That's 50 miles or so upriver from you. No natural gas pipeline do explode like this one near San Francisco in 2010.
The experts at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and FERC say there's nothing to worry about. Officials in the towns in the area arent' so sure.
Listen to this appeal by nuclear engineer Paul Blanch on July 15. He gave a press conference and spoke in Montrose New York which is a few miles
away from where the pipeline will be built.
Now the chances of an explosion that would cripple the nuclear power plant are low, BUT if it actually happened: trillions in damage and
a plume of radiation that could sweep across the city depending on how the wind was blowing. Are you OK with the odds?

There are other issues besides the safety of the Indian Point and this particular pipeline. #2 Why expand use of mathane gas at all
when scientists say our fossil fuel use policy is dooming the world to
a four degree centigrade
increase in average temperature in just 80 years? #3 Is it wise to keep a nuclear power plant open
near seismic faults? #4 Is it rational to create nuclear waste that we have to guard for thousands of years?
