Vermonters face a critical decision on our energy future: Vermont Yankee, the state’s sole nuclear power plant, is scheduled to close down on 2012. Currently, the Vermont Legislature is considering whether or not to grant a 20 year license extension to continue operation of the plant through 2032.
Panelists will discuss the political, health, economic, and environmental implications of this decision. Come join the discussion and learn more about this critical issue.
