Dr. Bob Brinkmann, Vice Provost for Scholarship and Engagement, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, and Professor of Geology, Environment, and Sustainability, was interviewed by the Associated Press about Governor Cuomo’s plans to close the Indian Point nuclear power plant.

He predicted the closure would have little impact and said the remainder of the state’s electric grid would be able to supply the power lost from Indian Point. “You can’t think of the energy grid as being within one state,” Dr. Brinkmann told reporter Frank Eltman “It expands to the whole continent. There are a lot of other electric energy sources that can provide support.”
