Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 04.06.17

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.
