Activists talk Indian Point solutions on sailboat in HV

As the nuclear disaster in Japan continues to unfold, Hudson Valley activists met with environmental experts, concerned citizens and local representatives on a sailboat in the Hudson River to discuss the key issues and alternatives facing the Indian Point power plant in Buchanan.

The Summit for Solutions left port on the Sloop Clearwater vessel yesterday afternoon, and organizers say they hoped that the river voyage would educate people on the issues of unsafe nuclear power, alternate sources of energy and jobs.

Organizers of the summit said that if Indian Point does eventually close, the Hudson Valley will be left to find an alternate source of power for the area, as well as new jobs for all of the would-be unemployed power plant workers.
