The protests that stopped Seabrook unit 2 are when we killed more nuclear in our backyards.

We remember. The industry remembers. Everybody farking remembers.

So...whuh?  Are they worried a Disney musical comedy kids show will make people think that the real nuke plant in the real Seabrook is going to create zombies or otherwise be dangerous?

Or are they afraid the real Seabrook might become a tourist destination of some sort?

This is what happens when you don't allow internet in the writers stable.

Someone in a convertible just drove past my house blasting ABBA at full volume, so I am okay with this.

I remember that sign well. If they add teenage zombies shuffling around the arcades at Salisbury Beach it will perfectly reflect my childhood.

It's a Springfield joke in here somewhere.

From TFA:  " On its website, Disney Channel describes "Zombies" as a "music- and dance-filled story set in the fictitious world of Seabrook, a cookie-cutter community brimming with perky conformity 50 years after a zombie apocalypse. Today, the zombies pose no threat but are required to live in Zombietown, an isolated, rundown community infused with their unique creative spirit."

The nice folks who made Fidomight want to call their office.  This sounds like Disney filed off the numbers and added songs.

It's a made for Disney Channel movie. This is what happens when the writers just have to fill in the blanks on a script template, mad libs style.

Drive by it every time I go to the beach.
Interesting side note, Seabrook Nuclear plant has no cooling towers.... pulls in ocean water to cool the reactor. And discharges the heated water which causes it own set of problems, but that's another story.

But it does prevent protest marches.

Sleep well Farkers knowing that I worked on construction at the plant a couple summers during college. My primary job was making the site earthquake proof.

What is the backstory here? The concern is that Disney made a movie about a city with a name that exists in a real life, and both have nuclear plants?

I assume every fictional tv town probably exists somewhere in the US...

It's just a coincidence that major character's last names are Eaton and Fowler and they are somehow related? Also a coincidence that a major plot point occurs as a strip mall with a fireworks store.

/Sounds like an actual upgrade to Seabrook.

But Seabrook NH does have zombies.  They're called New Hampshire residents.  F*cking white flight psychos.

In the movie that premiered on Feb. 16, an accident at a power plant turns half of the population living in the fictional town of Seabrook into zombies.

Which half?

Those protests were back in the 70s.  I'm not sure everybody remembers.

Fast forward to today and New England has a power problem.  Mass. may by the most NIMBY state in the union: Seabrook in nearby NH?  No! Too close!  Cape Wind? No! That'll kill the scenery!  Kinder Morgan gas line? No! Are you kidding?

There were two nuclear plants planned in Seabrook but the protests in Mass delayed the first one for so long that it bankrupted NH's local power company that had invested so heavily into them.  After a long court battle, the first finally came on line but the second one was a complete write off.  NH's electricity is ridiculously expensive now to pay off these stranded costs.

Recently, Mass. tried to get more power by essentially running a very long extension cord from Hydro Quebec.  Too bad for them for them it had to pass through NH.  Some NH residents, still bitter from what happened 40 years ago and reminded about it every month in their electric bill, ran a counter campaign and have so far successfully stalled the project.  It doesn't help that tourism is the #2 industry in NH and large portions of this extension cord have to pass through pristine tourist sites.

Bullshiat.

Brayton Point, the biggest plant in Mass., just closed due to lack of demand.

"low energy prices" = low demand

Unable to reach a new deal to supply power to ISO New England, the region's electric grid utility, the new owners of Brayton Point Power Station announced Monday that they plan to close the 1500-megawatt coal-fired plant by June 2017.

sure sounds like a lack of demand, but call it what you want

Did you take Econ 101 at Trump University?  Low demand is not the only cause of reduced prices.  Hint: What does an increase of supply do to prices?  Read the WSJ link above.

Um, no.  Read it again.  From your site: "In September 2013, the new owners announced that the plant would be shut down in May 2017, citing low electricity prices as well as high costs to meet environmental standards and maintain aging facilities."


/src: wikipedia, but at least it isn't a subscription-only link like yours

Oh good grief.  Just open it in a regular window and hide the comments.  I don't have a subscription to the Globe.  In case that's too difficult, I'll cite the relevant part: "Low natural gas prices and tougher pollution regulations are being blamed for the end of coal generation in Massachusetts."  Nothing in there about demand.  It's a 50+ year old coal plant that is no longer economically feasible due to environmental regulations increasing the costs of coal fired electricity.

Eversource isn't planning to spend $1.6 billion on Northern Pass to bring electricity to Mass. because they expect demand to drop.

So my count is 1 murderer teaching there and one Penthouse Pet graduated from there.  Risky bet.
