We discuss NUKES ON THE ROAD TO SHUTDOWN with the great KEVIN KAMPS.
As the atomic industry slumps to total market failure decrepit nukes like Ohio’s DAVIS-BESSE and California’s DIABLO CANYON slide toward complete collapse.
With his unique comprehension of the industry’s complex realities, Kevin walks us through the on-going downfalls in Illinois, Ohio and New York, along with the technical collapse of reactors like Indian Point, Pilgrim and Diablo Canyon.
In particular, these reactors are in violation of water quality laws on both the state and federal level and should have shut many moons ago.
DONNA GILMORE then fills us in on the battles over decommissioning California’s SAN ONOFRE . In particular, the fight over substandard dry casks for storing high level fuel rods has moved center stage as ratepayers are socked with hundreds of millions on costs that Southern California Edison does not want to cover. Donna’s assessment of this epic confrontation has especially serious implication for the future of us all.
