A protest organized by Gary Null in front of Governor Cuomo’s office in Manhattan to close Indian Point and stop Hydro-fracking.
Indian Point has more nuclear waste stored on site than Fukushima and is similarly vulnerable to a disruption of the electrical grid. One big worry is the possibility of another Carrington Event. We are approaching the cyclical solar max in 2012-2013, this combined with the weakening of the earth’s protective magnetic shield could bring down our power grid (frying hard to replace transformers) for many months, leaving us without communication, heating, cooling, water, food, transportation etc. Gary has the details of this on this article: Gary Null, PhD, and Jeremy Stillman” – Solar Storms: Katrina Times 1,000?
Hydro-fracking is a ridiculous scheme to trade our clean water for a pitiful amount of natural gas. It involves injecting toxic chemicals into the ground. It needs to be stopped. Go solar, wind and tidal power.
