Idiot NY Gov Andrew Cuomo Confirms Deal to Close Indian Point Nuclear Plant

Andrew Cuomo is one of the worst governors in New York history.
  But, that's not gonna stop him from angling to run for president in 2020.  Cuomo has been wating to close down Indian Point for years.  I thought Democrats love green energy?   

NY Times reports the Indian Point nuclear power plant north of New York City has been supplying low-cost electricity to the metropolitan area for more than 50 years. But to hear Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo tell it, New Yorkers will hardly miss Indian Point.

Mr. Cuomo announced on Monday that the state had reached an agreement with the plant’s operator, Entergy, to shut it down by April 2021. He minimized the effects the closure would have on the power grid, electric bills, workers and the regional economy.

In his State of the State address in Lower Manhattan, Mr. Cuomo characterized the deal as a hard bargain he had driven to rid the region of a “ticking time bomb” less than 30 miles from Midtown. He said the state would bear no costs in the shutdown or decommissioning of the plant’s two operating nuclear reactors.
