VERNON, Vt., Nov. 15 (UPI) — Environmental advocacy group Greenpeace said it flew a thermal airship over a Vermont nuclear power plant to highlight the plant’s risk.
Vermont in February voted to close the 38-year-old nuclear power facility. A leak of radioactive water forced the plant to close in early November, which Greenpeace said is a recurring trend that means it’s time to shut the facility for good.
Greenpeace said it flew a thermal airship over the “risky” reactor to send a message to plant owners Entergy that it’s time to close the reactor.
