How the Clamshell Alliance Got Its Name

By Renny Cushing

 The Clamshell Alliance got its name from the testimony of a SAPL witness, who testified that one of the effects of the cooling system, a total mortality system taking in more than a billion gallons of water a day, could destroy the “neuritic band” of pelagic clam larvae. By the way, the Clams can and do rightly claim a huge impact on the, I hope, permanent demise of nuclear power in this country. They cannot, however, claim one thing that SAPL achieved: the actual cessation of construction of the project – all
over the issue of the environmental impact of the cooling system.
