SAFE ENERGY IN THE SOUTHEAST as the Solartopia Show is honored by long-time activists TOM CLEMENTS and SARA BARZCAK. These Solartopiam stalwarts fill us in on the battles over federal loan guarantees for the overpriced, untested and uninsurable AP-1000 reactors being built in Georgia on your taxpayer dollars, and the two more being rammed down the throats of South Carolina ratepayers. These "vanguard" new nukes are the last vile hope of an industry headed rapidly down the tubes, along with the equally unproved "small modular reactors" which don't really exist but seem to sound good to that caterpillar on the mushroom.
We are initially joined by NICK THABIT who fills us in on the exciting new demonstrations being planned for the March 11 anniversary of the start of the Fukushima disaster. See you in Solartopia!
Radioactive death and disease from FUKUSHIMA'S FALLOUT poured over the USS RONALD REAGAN in March, 2011, as 3 melt-downs and 4 explosions ravaged the reactor site.
Crew member Lieutenant Steve Simmons tells us how his health has been destroyed in the three years since the ship sailed in and out of fallout clouds that the reactors' owners said did not exist.
The boat's officers told crew members not to drink or bath in the ship's water while also assuring them it was all "perfectly safe."
Attorneys PAUL GARNER and CHARLES BONNER have filed in federal court on behalf of 79 sailors, two children and potentially up to 70,000 Americans who were exposed. More Americans who were harmed---including a sailor who was pregnant at the time, and whose child has been born with birth defects---await in the wings.
This is the opening testimony in what may become the most devastating legal proceeding of the nuclear age.
