Summary

In 2010, Vermont legislators voted to shutter a nuclear power plant, putting the state at odds with the federal government and the plant's owner--the Louisiana-based Entergy Corporation. Public Meltdown explores the debate that roiled Vermont, including the lawsuits and court action that followed. In rich, well-researched detail, Dr. Watts tells a story that spotlights the role of state governments, citizens and activists in decisions about the nation's aging nuclear power fleet.
