There is no escape from the Cape. Why not remove the threat rather than the people? Close Pilgrim NOW, It is too risky to keep open. In the event of radioactive plume hit, Cape Codders will be told to ‘shelter in place’ with the State knowing that there is only 2-10% protection in your home and 10-40% protection in your basement*. THAT is not protection. Residents might not be able to return to their homes for decades. THAT is unacceptable, NRC!
