Gov. Baker Response to Speak Out

 

....The pending closure of the plant does not put the issue to rest for Wolf, who shares concerns with many on the Cape about the potential for a nuclear disaster on the site.

"What I'm hearing in district is people think, 'OK, onto the next issue,'" Wolf told the anti-nuclear-plant activists. He said, "What is the next issue is the Pilgrim nuclear power plant. That is the next issue in our backyard."

Wolf, who said he practiced "nonviolent civil disobedience" at the Seabrook nuclear plant in New Hampshire in 1977, advised those gathered for a rally in the State House that it would be important to make sure the spent fuel at the plant is dealt with responsibly

"Entergy Nuclear Corporation recently announced they plan to close Pilgrim in 2019.  The real Entergy narrative is not 'Pilgrim nuclear will be shut by mid-2019" but the fact it will continue to operate a degraded and dangerous nuclear reactor for profit for four more years.  This is UNACCEPTABLE!    The primary issue surrounding Pilgrim is neither energy nor economics:  It is public safety. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has rated Pilgrim as one of the worst operating reactors in the country, continuously downgrading the reactor for years.  We are now in a critical battle between money and profit over public safety, accountability, and unacceptable risks. Pilgrim needs to be closed now, not in 2019. Close Pilgrim NOW!"  Diane Turco, Executive Director, Cape Downwinders
