LETTERS | THE PRICES PAID AT PILGRIM
THE REAL Entergy narrative is not “Pilgrim nuclear plant will shut by mid-2019; (Page A1, Oct. 14), but the fact it will continue to operate a degraded and dangerous nuclear reactor for profit for four more years.
This is still 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.
