On January 7, 2014, the New York State Energy Planning Board released the 2014 draft New York State Energy Plan. The state releases an Energy Plan every four years to map out New York’s energy future. Unfortunately, the 2014 Draft State Energy Plan does not represent the sea-change in energy policy that New York needs to confront the global climate crisis, mounting pollution, public health concerns, or energy affordability.

Two thousand thirteen might go down in the history books as the year activists finally turned the tide against the nuclear power industry. It may also go down as the beginning of one of nuclear power’s most dangerous eras.

In the 1970s, anti-nuclear activists fought the industry to a virtual stalemate. Between 1979 and 2012, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) didn’t issue a single license for a new nuclear power plant. But victories against existing plants were rare. Fewer than ten were shut down permanently between 1980 and 2012.

“As long as nuclear weapons exist, we are not truly safe.” After approximately two years of silence on the issue, on June 19 President Obama called for reducing US and Russian nuclear weapons while speaking in Berlin. Many praised his proposal for a reduction of long-range nuclear weapons by “up to” a third. But critics point out that this is not enough, and is not even as significant a cut as it seems at first. US and Russia each have over 7,000 nuclear weapons, of which only about 1,500 apparently qualify for this proposed cut.
