Obama has made nuclear energy a centerpiece of his climate push. In reality, nuclear is NOT a low-carbon source of energy … and funding nuclear crowds out the development of better sources of alternative energy. Mark Jacobson – the head of Stanford University’s Atmosphere and Energy Program, who has written numerous books and hundreds of scientific papers on climate and energy, and testified before …
California’s DIABLO CANYON Nuclear Power Power Plant is surrounded by at least a dozen earthquake faults. Legendary lead attorney JOHN GEESMAN of the ALLIANCE 4 NUCLEAR RESPONSIBILITY explains why it needs to shut as soon as possible, and how that might actually happen.
Geesman is an extremely articulate, focused expert on Diablo whose in-depth knowledge and legal acumen have been significant underpinnings of the opposition for many years.
In this full-hour interview he explains the origins of the now-infamous report by Dr. Michael Peck, a Nuclear Regulatory Commission safety expert, warning that the reactors cannot withstand a likely quake. Nearly all the nearby fault lines have been discovered since the reactors were built.
Geesman also explains critical water issues that could arise within state regulatory network that could lead to Diablo being shut.
These two nukes could irradiate all of North America. Don’t miss this core discussion about how we might turn them off. NOW!!!
In 1976, Robert Pollard, a rarity among U.S. government nuclear officials—honest and safety-committed—said of the Indian Point nuclear power station that it was “an accident waiting to happen.” Pollard had been project manager at Indian Point for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) from which he resigned at that time charging the NRC “suppresses the existence of unresolved safety questions …
Four years have now passed since the Fukushima nuclear disaster began. This week’s Project Censored Show looks at Fukushima from several perspectives. Attorney Charles Bonner provides an update on the lawsuit seeking damages for the US Navy sailors who’ve suffered debilitating injuries since their ship was sent into the disaster zone to do relief work. Cindy Folkers speaks about the hazards of radioactive particles, and the inadequate monitoring of the Fukushima radiation releases. Retired nuclear engineer Arnie Gunderson looks at the overall safety record of nuclear power and finds it wanting. And Libbe HaLevy explains how people can minimize their radiation exposure.
