AAEA Comments At Nuclear Regulatory Commission Hearing

AAEA President Norris McDonald and AAEA New York Officer Director Dan Durett presented testimony before the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) on the License Renewal Application for the continued operation of Indian Point nuclear power plant located in Buchanan, New York. The NRC hearing was held on Sept 19, 2007 and included hundreds of participants. The vast majority of those attendees support the license renewal. The comments in support of the facility vastly outnumbered those in opposition. AAEA supports the relicensing of the plant to operate for twenty additional years beyond its current license.

We must also mention an unfortunate incident that involved a long-haired environmental activist harassing Hazel Dukes, President of the New York State Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) after her statement before the NRC. This is another recent example of how extremist environmentalists show extraordinary disrespect for Blacks who disagree with them.
