The great DR. HELEN CALDICOTT comes to us live from Australia with news of her upcoming NUCLEAR FREE PLANET SYMPOSIUM ( http://nuclearfreeplanet.org) scheduled for February 28/March 1 in New York City.
Helen's astonishing global network has attracted some of the world's great thinkers on nuclear issues including NOAM CHOMSKY, BOB ALVAREZ, BRUCE GAGNON and many others to a summit discussion of how our species might survive in a nuke-saturated situation.
Helen begins with a disturbing discussion of actions in Ukraine and the threat to the 15 atomic reactors still operating there. She warns that the death toll from Chernobyl has climbed over a million and that the western campaign to "back Putin into a corner" is fraught with danger.
She also recalls seeing the film classic ON THE BEACH as a teenager and the impact it had, leading her to show it again at the upcoming symposium.
Dr. Caldicott always brings the very best in medical and ecological wisdom. Don't miss her latest visit to Solartopia.
THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS NUKE might well be DAVIS-BESSE near Toledo, Ohio. Its Keystone Kop litany of shoddy construction, operator mishap and completely uncaring mis-management is unique---and uniquely dangerous.
But Ohio citizens now have a chance to shut it down by denying it the huge rate hike its owners are asking for this crumbling, decrepit reactor and at least one additional coal burner.
We're joined by local attorney TERRY LODGE and KEVIN KAMPS of BEYOND NUCLEAR, along with TIM JUDSON of the NUCLEAR INFORMATION & RESOURCE SERVICE. They fill us in on the sorry history and perilous present of this insanely faulty reactor.
Join us to hear atomic realities you couldn't make up. Here's how you might help shut this thing:

OPPOSITION COMMENT UNDER CASE # 14-1297-EL-SSO
DON'T FRACK/NUKE OUR EARTH!!!
Our Solartopian airwaves light up with DAVID BRAUN and LINDA SEELEY, long-time veterans of the No Nukes and Anti-Fracking movements.
David has helped organize the successful campaign that's banned fracking in New York while Linda has worked with the Mothers for Peace of San Luis Obispo that's helped rid California of all its nuke power reactors with just the two at Diablo Canyon lingering on, now under increasingly powerful grassroots attack.
Together they explore the spirit and politics of WINNING an EARTH that is FREE OF FOSSIL/NUKE DESTRUCTION, a Solartopia where our children and theirs can survive and thrive.
And together we proclaim an upcoming conference, and the joys of a combined movement powerful enough to get us to Solartopia. Don't miss this beautiful, inspiring green-powered ode to our Mother Earth!
