  1. Newly Discovered Seismic Fault Could Threaten Indian Point

    Earthquake risks in the greater New York City area are reassessed in a major study released today by a team of seismologists based at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Palisades, N.Y.

So itâ''s not surprising that the New York State government has decided to challenge the renewal of licenses for the two Indian Point reactors, which expire in 2013 and 2015, and nor is it surprising that the New York Times has weighed in with an editorial saying the state deserves to have …
