The avidly pro-nuclear New York Times (its pro-Indian Point editorials never cease and its last reporter who long covered the plants and the nuclear industry has now gone on to a job with the PR arm of the industry) said in its review: "'Indian Point' is a good overview of the issues, with insights into the problems of regulating the industry." It complained about Meeropol's being "steadfast in providing both sides."

Meanwhile, Indian Point sits there on the Hudson, continuing with accidents and in emitting what the NRC says are "permissible" levels of radioactivity. They are highly likely candidates for a Chernobyl or Fukushima-level catastrophe in the most highly populated area of the United States. And the NRC, steadfastly ignoring Jaczko's warnings, in league with Entergy, seeks to let the decrepit time bombs run for another 20 years--just asking for disaster.

The good news is that New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has been endeavoring to have the Indian Point nuclear plants closed and safe-energy activists and an array of environmental and safe-energy organizations are working hard to shut them down--and the film "Indian Point" is out.
