NUCLEAR FASCISM IN OHIO
We confront the horrific atomic coup on-going in Ohio with expert/activists PAT MARIDA (Sierra Club), KEVIN KAMPS (Beyond Nuclear) and DONNA GILMORE (SOS). who are in the of thick making the planet green again.
Pat reports from Columbus on the storm trooper tactics being used by pro-nuclear thieves to prevent the gathering of signatures for a certified statewide petition. The petition is in support of a referendum—certified by the state—to overturn a huge bailout for two nuke reactors (and two coal burners) that are set to explode on Lake Erie.
Kevin tells us that the hugely unpopular theft of ratepayer money perpetrated by the utility’s hired liars (with explicit help from Donald Trump) parallels industry tactics used in New York, New Jersey and Illinois to prop up similar soon-to-explode nukes.
Donna chimes in with the dire situation in California, where we still can’t get Governor Gavin Newsom to inspect the soon-to-explode atomic reactors at Diablo Canyon. In time of an earthquake, Diablo would send a radioactive cloud that would utterly destroy Los Angeles, killing millions and bankrupting the state, the nation, the species.
But for now the Ohio battle is all-consuming. The outcome could actually affect the 2020 presidential election. This podcast is the alchemical scripture from the dire straits. Don’t miss it.
