Synopsis: THE AGE OF NUCLEAR WASTE: HEALTH DANGERS OF TRITIUM
Our guests are Arjun Makhijani, Ph.D., president of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research and the principal author of the first study ever done (1971) on energy conservation potential in the U.S. economy. Most recently, Dr. Makhijani has authored Carbon-Free and Nuclear-Free: A Roadmap for U.S. Energy Policy, the first analysis of a transition to a U.S. economy based completely on renewable energy, and Dr. Gordon Edwards, a Canadian scientist and nuclear consultant, who is co-founder and president of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility. Dr. Edwards has written articles and reports on radiation standards, radioactive wastes, uranium mining, nuclear proliferation, the economics of nuclear power, and nonnuclear energy strategies. He has been featured on radio and television programs, including Eco-Logic.
Our news segments today cover victory at the California Water Board, an analysis of ecofascism, and what gives products their fragrance.
We also have environmental music: hear Creative Natives singing “Nuclear Waste”.
