On Thursday, March 1 from 6:30 – 8:30pm, the Columbia Law School Center for Climate Change Law will host a forum on the future of the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant. The Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant is located in Westchester County, New York, thirty miles north of New York City. Its two units opened in 1974 and 1976, and their owners have applied to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for relicensing for 20 years. Whether to relicense the plant has become a matter of considerable public controversy, raising issues of energy, environmental, and economic policy. This program will feature speakers with contrasting views on the fate of the facility and on the underlying policy and legal issues.

  1. I attended the event on March 1 (on Indian Point), and have intermittently been checking your website for the video of that evening that an announcement said would be posted.

    Of particular interest on March 1, was the erroneous way in which one of the speakers (for Entergy) characterized the seismic issues.
    Please do post that video, so that I (and others) can see it and circulate both what was said, and a correct version of the history here (of how seismic hazard was inadequately taken into account at the original licensing hearings, which I attended; and how it’s being handled now).

    Thanks — Paul Richards
