THE DEMISE OF US ATOMIC POWER comes to Solartopia.
We talk with PAT MARIDA of Ohio Sierra’s nuclear committee, LINDA PENCE GUNTER of Beyond Nuclear, and TOM CLEMENTS, the great southeastern stalwart of the movement to bury nuclear energy.
We begin with the proposed bailout of Ohio’s failing nukes. We talk of the bankruptcy of the once-mighty WESTINGHOUSE. We assess the failures of reqctor construction throughout the world, as well as the impossibility of radioactive waste management and the oxymoron of reactor safety.
We finish with consensus on the coming of renewable energy.
But in the meantime, these three great expert/activists give us a unique and powerful critique of exactly what has happened to this most expensive and dangerous of all technologic, now hopefully about to be buried.

Then long-time solar expert SCOTT SKLAR, AMIT RONEN of George Washington University and community wind pioneer DAN JUHL run us through the spectacular range of progress and promise …
THE FALL OF THE NUKE POWER INDUSTRY is welcomed in Solartopia as we talk with JIM GREEN in Australia.
Our first “down-under” guest is the nuclear campaigner for Friends of the Earth and edits the NUCLEAR MONITOR for the NUCLEAR INFORMATION & RESOURCE SERVICE.
He fills us in on the current energy crisis in Australia and Elon Musk’s offer to solve it with a giant battery farm, a solution Jim Green basically dismisses.
We then cover the thrilling demise of the global atomic power industry, starting with Fukushima and visiting the collective downfall of the American and European industries.
We worry about China, Russia, India and South Korea. But Jim’s in-depth understanding of the collapse of the Peaceful Atom gives us profound hope.
