    Hi Bob, sounds like a lot of chaos at the Indian Point nuke plant on the Hudson with a spike of 65’000 percent in radioactive tritium. It’s got the Governor freaked out. Could you describe what is going on ,thanks.

      Hi Altimometer, … uhh, not so much. Gov Cuomo has police and an Army working for him. Indian Point nuker Plant got caught for the umptheenth time dumping huge amounts of radioactive poisons in the air we all breathe and this weasel gets all officious and orders a Study?? Where’s the urgency? No where that I can see.

      The Gov is just another paid off politician sacrificing voters to the nuke monster, Altimometer.

      it is sick-O and Disgusting. Gross…..
