Back in the 70's there was a song: Freeze a Yankee

Nobody will have to do a thing, they're doing it to themselves.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York is expected to confirm on Monday that the state has reached an agreement to shut down the Indian Point nuclear power plant, which sits less than 30 miles north of New York City, by April 2021, state officials said.
You know what they have to replace it?  Nothing.  Gov. Howler is counting on unicorn farts and buying electricity from Canada.  As the guy at Reason says
So your plan is to shut down an American energy plant of high repute and replace its output with hydroelectric power from Canada? That’s exactly the opposite of promoting domestic energy independence. And the idea that it won’t affect utility rates is a pipe dream as well. New Yorkers already pay the highest utility rates in the country outside of Hawaii and they’re only going to go further up because of this.

I'm sure the usual screamers are trumpeting their victory over Radiation.  Because they're stupid.  Too bad the plant can't be moved to supply people not in NY effingCity.  The people who didn't want Gov. Howler controlling their lives.

Thought I remembered something, and I found it; piece from last year on the idiots in that region apparently preferring freezing in the dark to nasty pipelines and such.

Short version: The 'social justice' types are eating each other.  And not in a fun way.
