VY’s waste will be with us for a million years

DUMMERSTON — Vermont Yankee is so dangerous that no insurance company will cover it.

The hundreds of tons of nuclear waste at Vermont Yankee is the most deadly material on Earth. The waste must be protected by heavily armed guards, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for the next 1 million years. That's according to the National Academies of Science.

Vermont gets no power from Vermont Yankee.

Planning is under way for possible nonviolent civil disobedience at Vermont Yankee on Sunday, Sept. 8. If you would like to join in, please call me at 802-254-2531 or e-mail [email protected].
