RE: “Drain the river, close Vermont Yankee” [Letters, Aug. 1]:
Wow, Peter Van der Does — you, sir, are brilliant! With all that backed-up water, maybe you could reverse the flow of the river to Canada and sell it to them so you can recoup some of that money you’re spending to send American jobs overseas!
While we’re at it, why don’t we just build giant fans in front of all the windmills so that wind will finally be a reliable power source? Or hold flashlights over solar panels at night?
