Harvey Wasserman’s Solartopia show of March 9th, featured the Moe, Larry and Curly of the anti-nuclear movement – Kevin Kamps of Beyond Nuclear, Tim Judson of Nuclear Information and Resource Service, and Dave Kraft of Chicago’s Nuclear Energy Information Service (NEIS). We discuss Fukushima on the 6th anniversary of the disaster, and the nuclear bailouts in Illinois, New York and Ohio.
We began by assessing the final collapse of the push for new nukes in the US, especially with the collapse of Westinghouse and France’s Areva. But we then examine the far more terrifying turf of dying old uncompetitive nukes being kept on line with huge state-based hand-outs.
Basically it boils down to your money AND your life.
