False Solutions Circus at the Shut Down Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant Day of Action

On March 22, 2012, over 1200 people gathered in Brattleboro, Vermont to tell Entergy corporation to shut down Vermont Yankee nuclear plant. The 40 year old plant had been scheduled to be decommissioned the day before on March 21. Instead, Entergy sued the state of Vermont and forced the state to allow it to continue operating in spite of leaks of radioactive fluid and numerous safety issues.

Members of Gears of Change Youth Media and Red Clover Climate Justice hosted a False Solutions Circus at the action, to draw connections between the greenwashing of nuclear power and other ecologically and socially devastating energy sources currently being proposed as “climate solutions.”
