Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant

    Newer Older

    This is Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant in Buchanan, New York, nestled alongside the Hudson River.

    In our seemingly insatiable quest for energy, some people are now saying more nuclear power plants, along with everything else, must be built to meet our needs.

    Nuclear is now "Green" and "safe"?

    Indian Point has had numerous problems, the cost of construction for nuclear plants is huge (especially when compared to developing renewable resources), the nuclear waste issue has not been solved and these plants ar subject to terrorist attack.

    I stood across the river from it and took this photo with my Nikon and its extended lens. A large hot dog truck was parked nearby and open for business.

    What do you think about this?

    Politics for Misfits, nathanblock, and 6 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Hi Tony,

      I work for a national non-profit environmental organization and I was wondering if we could use your photo of the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant station in our next newsletter. We would give you credit under any name you choose (Tony the Misfit?). We're discussing the recent supreme court decision on cooling water intake structures at power plants. I know you use Creative Commons, but I wanted to make sure it would be ok to use your photo.

      Nice photo Tony. I've used it on my blog

      Cheers and keep them coming!

      I have also taken the liberty of using this in a mock-up of the impression of a new nuclear build at Oldbury/Shepperdine in the UK. Thanks!

      Definitely the best image of a nuclear power station on Flickr.

      I've used this pic for a blog post about UK nuclear power expansion and carbon reduction targets at my company's news site at Energy-Saving News.

      Thanks for making it available for use - nice one!

      We used this picture to illustrate an article about the nuclear waste of the Indian Point nuclear power plant (in Dutch). Thank you for the CC license.
