"Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant looms just 35 miles from Times Square. With over 50 million people living in close proximity to the aging facility, its continued operation has the support of the plant's operators and the NRC--Nuclear Regulatory Commission -- yet has stoked a great deal of controversy in the surrounding community, including a vocal anti-nuclear contingent concerned that what happened at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant could happen here. In the brewing fight for clean energy and the catastrophic possibilities of government complacency, director Ivy Meeropol presents a balanced argument about the issues surrounding nuclear energy and offers a startling reality check for our uncertain nuclear future."--Container.

Educational documentary on the recent years of litigation that led to last month's decision to shut down NY State's nuclear power plant at Indian Point where 20 million people live and work within 50 miles of the plant, located just 24 miles north of New York City on the banks of the Hudson River in Westchester County. Interesting pros and cons as the population near the Nuke plant continues to grow and that environmental concerns on health of the River wildlife, waste disposal and unimaginable disaster caused by Fukushima Daiichi reactors become front and center. BTW, in June 2016, PG&E announced that it plans to close Diablo Canyon in 2025 which will make California free of commercial nuclear power plants as well.

(See details in "Summary.")
History in the making! Riverkeeper, New York State, and Entergy have signed a landmark agreement to close Indian Point Energy Center by 2021.

“This agreement provides what we’ve been fighting for for decades: a definite early closing date for Indian Point — our biggest existential threat in the region. It’s a win for the safety of our communities, a win for the Hudson River and all the rich variety of life within it, and a win for a clean, sustainable energy future. Riverkeeper is thrilled that the Governor stepped up to get this deal done — just like he promised he would.”
– Paul Gallay, President and Hudson Riverkeeper
