SHUTTING THE DIABLO CANYON NUKE is essential to the survival of human beings in North America.  We discuss developments at this twin reactor complex sitting on a dozen earthquakes faults with key experts in the fight.
JIM HEDDLE and MARY BETH BRANGAN of the ENVIRONMENTAL OPTIONS NETWORK of northern California are joined by DONNA GILMORE of SAN ONOFRE SAFETY and CYNTHIA PAPERMASTER OF CODE PINK.
We discuss the criminal negligence by Pacific Gas & Electric that blew up 50 houses in the town of San Bruno and killed 8 people.  Such irresponsible safety abuse is everywhere evident at Diablo Canyon, where radioactive fuel canisters are leaking, critical security features can’t be inspected and major operating components have been installed upside-down.
Thankfully, the BERKELEY CITY COUNCIL has joined the movement for sanity by passing a resolution to shut Diablo Canyon as soon as possible.
This deep exploration with four great activists will tell you much you need to know to push ahead for the shut-down of these truly horrifying nukes.

THE WAR AGAINST SOLAR POWER comes to Solartopia today with three great expert/activists.

Pulitzer-nominee JACQUES LESLIE opens with his powerful NYTimes article on Nevada’s attempt to crush the massive, successful spread of rooftop panels.  Jacques’ unique, distinguished journalistic career has spanned the field from Vietnam to a marquee book on big dams and much more.

Long-time nuclear opponent JUDY TREICHEL reports to us from Nevada on the Public Utilities Commission decision to assault homeowners like herself who have installed highly productive solar panels.  The corrupt state government is now waging war to protect the fossil/nuke investments of the Koch Brothers against the clean, cheap, job-producing power of the sun.

By contrast, activist PAUL KANGAS joins us to talk about the California Public Utilities Commission decision to guarantee a 15 cent/kilowatt-hour payment to homeowners pumping juice into the grid from their own solar panels.  The city of Berkeley has now resolved to shut the Diablo Canyon nuke, upping the ante on the race between renewables and the likelihood of a catastrophic explosion at the state’s last reactors.  

All-in-all, this is a program sure to make the sun shine in your heart…and on your roof.

HOW DO WE PREVENT ANOTHER STRIP & FLIP ELECTION THEFT IN 2016?

We are joined by MIMI KENNEDY, BOB FITRAKIS & ANGELA WATTERS to seek out ways to stop the White House and the rest of our government from again being stolen yet again by election fraud.
The need to verify your own voter registration, to safeguard exit polling, to monitor electronic vote counts and much more are what we discuss here.  Mimi from Progressive Democrats of America, Bob from www.freepress.org and Angels from Reader Support News fill a completely packed hour on this critical topic.
We cannot afford the thefts of governorships in Wisconsin and Alabama to keep happening, or the thefts of the White House as in 2000 and 2004, and much more to continue to happen.
Get to the core of it in this hour with these great experts.  We will continue to work on it as we fight our way to a truly democratic Solartopia the only way we can….with legitimate, reliable democratic elections…..

ELECTION THEFT IN IOWA, NEW HAMPSHIRE AND BEYOND?  

We are concerned about the reported outcome of the Iowa caucuses and what that might mean for the general election.  With the great GREG PALAST and BOB FITRAKIS, and with READER SUPPORTED NEWS reporter SCOTT GALINDEZ we explore what really happened with the vote count there.

We also ask the $64 trillion question:  CAN BERNIE WIN IN A “STRIP & FLIP” ELECTRONIC SELECTION?  

We look the impact of stripping the voter rolls and flipping the vote count from the 2000 and 2004 presidential thefts for George W. Bush, and see what the implications might be for 2016.  It’s not a pretty picture.
