WILL PACIFIC GAS & ELECTRIC’S BANKRUPTCY SHUT THE DIABLO CANYON NUKES?

No question of human survival is more urgent than shutting the huge twin reactors surrounded by earthquake faults at Diablo Canyon, California.  Perched above the Pacific, 9 miles west of San Luis Obispo, these aging, defective, decrepit atomic behemoths threaten all of California and the United States with radioactive extinction.

We’re joined by long-time utilities attorney JOHN GEESMAN and expert/activist DONNA GILMORE to explore how PG&E’s looming bankruptcy could give the state of California the leverage to force at least three critical inspections at Diablo.  The mega-utility in 2010 blew up part of San Bruno, killing eight people.  It has been linked to at least 17 of the 2017-8 fires that ravaged northern California, killing scores of people while doing billions in damage and destroying one of the world’s most critical eco-systems.

PG&E must now go to the state for major financial, legal and other assistance.  In return, California might well demand a close look at the plant’s potential embrittlement problems, the likelihood that the reactor pressure vessel is cracked, the critical deficiencies in its waste management protocols, and much more.

Diablo Unit One is schedule for a 40-day refueling outage in February.  Will the state intervene to demand its safety certification where everyone knows the Nuclear Regulatory Commission will take a pass?
This discussion with Donna and John may set the tone for one of humankind’s most important life-or-death decisions.

TRUMP’S ESPIONAGE, CODE PINK’S PEACE & THE GREEN NEW DEAL

 
 
We’re joined in Solartopia by the great MARC ASH, Editor/Publisher of READER SUPPORTED NEWS, to discuss his recent assertions about the flagrant illegalities of Donald Trump.  Marc’s articles lay out the case that while we are not officially at war, and therefore Trump’s law-breaking may not be technically treasonous, they might certainly meet the standards of espionage.
 
We then welcome MEDEA BENJAMIN and JODIE EVANS of CODE PINK.  These two legendary activists have been effectively campaigning for peace, social justice and ecological harmony for decades with enormous impact.
 
We talk with Medea about the shocking vote of the US Senate—including many Republicans—to defy Trump and demand an end to US complicity with Saudi Arabia in the holocaust in Yemen.  
 
Jodie then fills us in on the Green New Deal and the need to switch to a peace-based budget that will fund the desperately-needed conversion to a renewable-based 100% green economy.  
 
With one of America’s great editors and two of its leading activists, this is a show you should not miss.
