Potential Catastrophe Likely Worse Than Fukushima

New York City's Nuclear Power Plant Sees 65,000% Spike In Radiation

The Indian Point nuclear power plant just 40 kilometers from New York City is leaking radioactive flow into groundwater, which leads to the Hudson River.

In January, a group of workers accidentally spilled contaminated water, which has caused a massive radiation spike in groundwater monitoring wells, with one reading increasing by as much as 65,000 per cent.

The leak is the 9th in a series of technical glitches at the nuclear facility in the past twelve months, four of which were so bad the reactors had to be shut down, reports RT.

A Disaster Waiting to Happen

“It’s a disaster waiting to happen and it should be shut down,” Paul Gallay, president of Riverkeeper, told CBS News.

Nuclear activists have called for years for the plant to close, calling it “Chernobyl on the Hudson” and warning of a Fukushima-like disaster.

Official declarations stress that there is no danger to public health.

After Chernobyl and Fukushima one wonders what more we need to face the reality of the threats and dangers that nuclear energy poses.
