Harvey Wasserman embraces your views with a Solartopian vision of the people’s politics, ecology, holistic health and much more.
Green Power airs Mondays at 3pm ET/ Noon PT
The REAL EXPERTS tell us how to KEEP SAN ONOFRE SHUT as we hear from the great Arnie Gundersen and Kendra Ulrich of Friends of the Earth. Their successful suit at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Atomic Safety and Licensing Board has won an order requiring public hearings and a full investigation into how San Onofre Units 2 and 3 wound up with a defective steam generator system that could threaten the entire US if allowed to operate again.
Nukes, crows and social media drive our Green Power and Wellness show. We hear of a california judge banning cameras from a public nuke hearing
A novelist tells of an island of crows at war with developers
And the great Rory O Connor dissects the revolution in social media. Join us again in Solartopia.
We go from SAN ONOFRE to SYRIA as our weekly nuke report zeroes in on the two dormant California nukes everybody loves to hate. MYLA RESON and ACE HOFFMAN update us on how the tide is turning against these on-the-brink reactors.
Then the great DAVID SWANSON, newly appointed Secretary of Peace for the Green Shadow Cabinet gives us the inside scoop on Syria and the global attempt to finally end war. If anyone can tell us how, from Guantanamo and Bradley Manning to the abolition of nuclear weapons, it’s David Swanson. Don’t miss this show!
OUR PEOPLE’S GREEN (SHADOW) CABINET with JILL STEIN, 2012 Green Party Presidential candidate comes to as after the great ACE HOFFMAN gives us the weekly update on the struggle to keep those SAN ONOFRE reactors shut. As local governments line up in opposition, and whistleblowers warn of likely disaster, a tsunami of safe energy activism is redefining the future of southern California.
As for “Madame President” Jill Stein, since her 2012 campaign she’s been been pulling together a “government” of organizers and experts who can save this country in ways the corporate mainstream will never imagine. With some 80 lifelong activists of all ages, backgrounds and areas of expertise, this merry band of great minds and hearts is offering hope and guidance for a sustainable world to come.
WE GET TO SOLARTOPIA BY SHUTTING SAN ONOFRE as we begin with nuclear opponents Donna Gilmore and Michael Mariotte. From southern California Donna tells us about the local battle to keep Units 2 & 3 permanently shut. Michael speaks from the Nuclear Information & Resource Service about how the Nuclear Regulatory Commission needs to be forced to stop giving out licenses to reactors that threaten us all.
Then PAUL GIPE re-joins us to further explain the nuts and bolts of how Solartopian technology is re-shaping our world’s energy system. A true godfather of the renewable energy industry, Paul’s iron grip on the nitty-gritties of the green transformation in Germany and elsewhere makes for an irreplaceable primer on how we must power a truly sustainable future.
CLEAN TECH NATION with CLINT WILDER comes to the Solartopia Green Power & Wellness Show today at 3pm eastern at www.prn.fm. Clint has a world of wisdom on where our country needs to go to convert to safe, cheap, clean technologies that will allow us to survive on this planet. We’ll trade some “war stories” on 2 No Nukes concerts 30 years apart.
But before we go there, Myla Reson will join us from southern California with the latest on the battle to keep San Onofre shut.
WINNING A TOTALLY GREEN GRID is the Solartopian goal of legendary renewables pioneer PAUL GIPE at this landmark Green Power & Wellness Show. For decades Paul has pioneered the power of wind, solar and the whole array of renewable energy resources. One of the planet’s most powerful advocates of the feed-in tariff, Paul speaks with brilliance and clarity of green power industry’s accelerating capabilities to produce ALL our industrial energy far faster than many believed possible. This is absolutely critical information for everyone who works for our survival on this planet.
ELECTION THEFT AND THE RESTORATION OF DEMOCRACY are center stage as BOB FITRAKIS joins the Green Power & Wellness Show to talk about the litany of ways we are denied our voice. A new generation of Jim Crow laws deny people of color, elders, young people, poor people and other suspected small-d voters of our rights. Electronic voting machines flip the ballot count. Gerrymandered Congressional and statewide districts entrench a moneyed minority. Money in politics and corporate personhood lock in the power of the super-rich. The Senate filibuster makes the possibility of appointing a person with democratic views to the US Supreme Court. As we sum up the barriers to our democracy, we also hear from ACE HOFFMAN about the latest insanities at California’s SAN ONOFRE NUCLEAR unit 2, where the utilities want to run a damaged reactor, near earthquake faults in a tsunami zone, as an “experiment” with 8 million people in the vicinity—and all the rest of us downwind.
FUKUSHIMA, CHERNOBYL AND THE GREAT HEALTH IMPACT COVERUP are with us through Dr. Janette Sherman, Joe Mangano and Professor Sarah D. Phillips. Dr. Sherman and Joe Mangano are among the tiny group of scientists and researchers who have investigated the impacts of the fallout from these disasters, and their findings are not good. In particular, they warn that Fukushima’s fallout has impacted us here in the United States. Prof. Phillips has found disturbing parallels between treatment of fallout victims in “democratic” Japan with those in the “dictatorial” former Soviet Union. It all reminds us, unfortunately, of what also happened in central Pennsylvania following the 1979 disaster at Three Mile Island. Finally Ace Hoffman fills us in on the latest nonsense at SAN ONOFRE, two reactors in California’s tsunami/earthquake zones. They are now shut, but utility attempts to reopen them could bring us new Chernobyl/Fukushimas of our own.
HEMP! is with us at the Solartopia Green Power & Wellness Show along with Doug Fine’s TOO HIGH TO FAIL. Doug returns to share his extensive research into the world’s most potentially profitable industrial crop. We cruise from edible hemp oil to cannabis building insulation to bio-fuels, paper, clothing and Ben Franklin, Tom Jefferson, George Washington. From the Emerald Triangle to the green bluegrasses of Kentucky and beyond, if you have the slightest interest in the future of American farming and industry, don’t miss this show.
