Maybe Cuomo can pay off the right people and get a high voltage line to NYC, then build more nukes in upstate NY. Then we can close IPEC. How can you argue with this? Spent fuel pools are such a ludicrous thing. Full of fuel and sitting 60 feet above the ground - what were they thinking.. oh yeah that a Yucaa Mountain would be open so they wouldn't have to put all this fuel in there that can be easily exposed to the environment and catch fire if the water level drops. If the decision comes to stop nukes in 10-20 years I am sure it will happen much sooner as people flee the industry to find employment elsewhere. Can't wait for Barney, Nancy, Harry and Barbara to entertain us over the next few years on the issue.
What is needed is for the spend fuels to be stored where the heat can be useful. I think it is economic to store them near the reactors to keep them secure and monitor them with the same staff as used for the reactors. What they do now is stupid since the excess heat is not used as far as I know. The spend fuel should be moved to a Yucca New York Site to supply heat to Cuomo's Home and New York State Govenment Buildings or the prisons in New York if they can not go the Yucca Mountain near Harry Reed's Home.
