Over the weekend a fish found in the Connecticut river near Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power plant was confirmed to be contaminated with strontium-90. Only a few days before, it was revealed that strontium-90 is contaminating the soil at the Vermont Yankee site. Strontium-90 is a dangerous radioactive substance.
Don’t you think these events are connected? I do. Yet Yankee officials claim there is no connection. The fish was four miles upstream. Last I checked, fish swim upstream and can swim four miles. Then they said the radiation levels are consistent with what would be present from long ago nuclear testing or Chernobyl.
Unbelievable. There’s a saying that when you hear hoof beats, don’t think of a zebra. It is probably a horse. I think Vermont Yankee is seeing zebras everywhere — avoiding the obvious in hopes of avoiding responsibility.
This is shameful.
