Plymouth divided over Pilgrim’s license renewal
Some cite nuclear plant’s safety and terrorism risk, others not that concerned
PLYMOUTH -- Carl Crowley remembers being a little boy and leafing through a comic book that explained nuclear power through an illustrated super-hero. “That was the town’s way to explain to the children what was going on,” Crowley, 46, said Sunday, laughing. “Now, I don’t think something like that would go over well today.” The Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant has not gone over well for many residents here since it was built in 1972, and after its license was renewed Friday for 20 more years, some residents were unhappy although others felt it is safe.
