THE INSANE NY NUKE BAILOUT headlines in Solartopia today as TIM JUDSON of the NUCLEAR INFORMATION & RESOURCE SERVICE joins MANNA JO GREENE of CLEARWATER and KEVIN KAMPS of BEYOND NUCLEAR to discuss the $7-11 billion potential handout to keep four dangerously decrepit nuke reactors on line in the Empire State.

Because they are obsolete and uncompetitive, the Ginna, Fitzpatrick, Nine Mile One and Nine Mile Two reactors have been headed for shut-down.  The cannot compete with renewables, worsen climate chaos and threaten the entire northeast with radioactive catastrophe.

In fact, their owners have been angling to shut them down for years.  But Gov. Andrew Cuomo has now strongarmed the New York Public Utilities Commission to take up to $11 billion in public money to prolong the operation of these dying nukes.

If it goes through, the proposal would cost jobs, heat the planet and threaten millions with radioactive death and destruction.  Yet without a public vote, Cuomo has decided to risk New York’s future on this dead technology.

Tim, Manna Jo and Kevin run us through the essential basics, and tell us how we can and must unite to stop this.  Don’t miss this vital strategy session.

 The Republican, the Democrat and the Green.

Bob heads the “Federal Elections Commission” for the Green Party and spoke at all three conventions on the need to prevent our elections from once again being stolen.  

As co-author of seven books on election theft, Bob makes it clear that Bernie Sanders was the rightful winner of the Democratic nomination.  Co-author (with me) of THE STRIP & FLIP SELECTION OF 2016:  FIVE JIM CROWS & ELECTRONIC ELECTION THEFT, Bob has a Ph.D. in political science and is a member of the Ohio Bar.  As a full professor at Columbus State Community College, Bob is known worldwide for his writings and research.

Together we will co-author a new piece on this year’s primaries.  Meanwhile, be sure to listen to the hard realities of how bad our electoral system really is.

A SHOCKING NUKE BAILOUT has been proposed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.  It will use billions of New York’s public money to prolong operations at four of New York’s dangerous, dirty upstate nuke reactors.

The great KARL GROSSMAN tells us why this is a truly horrendous idea, and how we might stop it.

Karl’s great career in the Long Island media and his superb coverage of the nuclear issue make him a unique authority on this extremely threatening proposed bail-out.

No one knows the story better than Karl, who knew Andrew’s father Gov. Mario Cuomo and who understands the complexities of this crucial moment as well as anyone.

If you are concerned about our nuclear future and the realities of what’s now happening in New York, don’t miss this show.
