A quick look at today's flotilla protest at Vermont Yankee where hundreds of thousands (okay maybe a few less than that) turned out off the coast of Vermont Yankee's waterfront property to protest the discharge of hot water into the Connecticut River. Enjoy the super slow mo, underwater cam, and overly dramatic music to boot.
