Richard Watts, Ph.D., reviews the very public debate around the decision to re-license Vermont Yankee power plant. Dr. Watts will chart the evolving discourse around the plant between Entergy Corporation's purchase of the plant and the Vermont Senate's 2010 vote to close the plant. The plant's initial 40-year license expires on March 21, 2012. Richard Watts is research professor in Community Development & Applied Economics and the Transportation Research Center at UVM and has recently completed a book by the same name.
