Fish Light in Vermont

I agree with the President and the Republicans. I think nuclear energy is great.  The fish in Vermont glow in the dark now, so you can see them…Think of it, you don’t even need a rod, just scoop them up with a net.

No pun intended, I am just shedding light on the situation in Vermont: According to an article in Scientific American, scientists have recently found a fish containing a radioactive material that is known to cause bone cancer and leukemia, in the Connecticut River near Entergy’s Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant.

According to the article, “Strontium-90 and other human made radioactive materials come from the fairly constant release of very low quantities from medical and industrial users of radioactive materials, and from infrequent releases such as above-ground nuclear weapons testing in the 1950s, and the nuclear reactor accidents at Chernobyl in 1986 and Fukushima in 2011.”

It is tragic that a beautiful place like Vermont has to be tainted with the pollution stemming from poor policy decisions in Washington.

But at least now, when you go to your favorite sushi restaurant, think of the savings in energy…Who needs lights when you can see your dinner in the dark?
