Even though Entergy’s own reports and data say that Pilgrim’s once-through cooling system destroys marine life in Cape Cod Bay, the state agency responsible under federal law for protecting the Bay is siding with the Louisiana-based company and saying “no problem”!
The state Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM), under state Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Rick Sullivan sided with Entergy in a May 21 letter responding to local groups’ concerns. The groups asked CZM to revoke its bogus 2006 approval for the NRC’s relicensing of Pilgrim.
After being bullied by Entergy’s lawyers, the state CZM sided with Entergy and refuses to revoke the bogus approval.
On June 15, 2012, the groups asked Sullivan’s shop to reconsider its illegal decision to stick by Entergy. Read the letter here. Revoke Entergy Approval Letter
Pilgrim will make $7.3 billion in revenue in 20 years off Pilgrim under its new license from its lapdog the NRC. Yet, state regulators refuse to make this greedy corporation clean up its act and put in a less destructive cooling water system.
Tell Secretary Sullivan that CZM should do its job and protect Cape Cod Bay, not Entergy’s pocketbook!!
