Away from the marshes of Seabrook, a citizens’ movement took aim at the industry’s Achilles’ heal and won. The strategy was to cut the nukes off from the public money supply, and in town meetings and elections and legislatures and utility commissions across the country the industry fell hard. It still has not recovered.
Though the press chose to cover this anniversary as a local story, it marks a truly democratic moment in our history.
