Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 01.28.16

NUKE WASTE IN WISCONSIN vs. SOLAR POWER IN CALIFORNIA:

We begin in Wisconsin with KEVIN KAMPS of BEYOND NUCLEAR who tells us that the absurdly corrupt legislature in Wisconsin is trying to repeal a 33-year ban on atomic reactor construction. Of course, Wisconsin’s Kewaunee reactor just shut for economic reasons, and there’s zero chance new reactors will be built there without 100% taxpayer subsidies. But Kevin’s excellent article on this is at https://ecowatch.com/2016/01/28/great-lakes-nuclear-waste-dump/3/ and he tells us why stacking more nuke waste along the Great Lakes is patently insane.

We then hear breaking news from PAUL KANGAS and the CALIFORNIA PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION which has just approved a 15 cent fixed rate for homeowners to collect on electricity pumped into the grid from the solar panels on their rooftops. With thousands of Californians sending green power into the system we may soon see DIABLO CANYON and other nukes following Kewaunee into the nuke dump pile. Paul explains how California now joins Maine in paying a firm, fixed rate for decentralized renewable production and paving the way to SOLARTOPIA!!!
