Nuclear Activist retires after 37 years with Coalition

For nearly 4 decades, Diana Sidebotham has watched and worried, but also acted. The 75-year old Sidebotham is the former head of the nuclear watchdog group The New England Coalition, the only organization currently bringing a legal challenge to the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant’s efforts to keep running for another 20 years beyond its 2012 expiration date. Sidebotham speaks with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb about her retirement.
