Nuclear Expert Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education: Indian Point [nuclear plant in New York] runs 2 billion gallons of water through it every day. So that’s alive, vibrant water that goes in, and gets heated up 40+ degrees and comes out dead water.

Then the other example is up in Vermont. This is from the Connecticut Riverkeeper. They told me that before Vermont Yankee was built in the 80s, they did a shad population survey and the shad, there was about 70,000 shad counted in the river heading upstream [...] and now there’s 16. Not 16 thousand. 16. We’ve essentially decimated the shad population.
