INSANE BAILOUTS FOR DEAD NUKES come to the anti-Solar war chest in the form of $7.6 billion in NY, $2.3 billion in IL, $5+ billion in Ohio and much more.

These bailouts are scams for utilities owning nukes that should be shut down immediately.  The money is tied to nothing except the personal profits of the mega-rich executives and stockholders perpetrating this fraud.

Two great safe energy stalwarts come to Solartopia to dissect this disaster.  KARL GROSSMAN, legendary author, professor, journalist and activist, tells us how green forces won on Long Island and how such victories can be duplicated today.  KEVIN KAMPS of BEYOND NUCLEAR fills us in on the situation in Illinois, Ohio, Michigan and other states where greedy nuke-based utilities are fleecing the public while keeping increasingly dangerous nukes on the brink of Chernobyl roulette.

Thankfully, a grassroots movement may defeat the bailout in Ohio, and court cases are proceeding against the one in New York.  To get the inside scoop on perhaps the most critical battle of our lifetime, in which future Fukushimas are prevented or subsidized, be sure to listen in to these two great expert/activists.

NULLIFICATION OF THE 2016 ELECTION BY NON-VIOLENT MEANS is the banner headline at Solartopia today.

As the increasingly dangerous disaster of the Trump fiasco deepens, we are joined by long-time activists DON GOLDMACHER and BOB FITRAKIS to discuss survival strategies.

DON is a life-long Berkeley-based grassroots campaigner and film producer.   BOB is my co-author on the new STRIP & FLIP DISASTER OF AMERICA’S STOLEN ELECTIONS (www.freepress.org).

As we see impeachment being an unlikely outcome of Trump’s massive misbehavior, we search for alternative routes.  Impeachment would empower a Gang of Four including Mike Pence, Paul Ryan, Rex Tillerson and Mitch McConnell.

Redoing the 2016 election would provide an actual choice of competent alternatives, but there is no Constitutional provision for this and no historical record of it ever happening.

Maybe it’s time to make one!

Solartopia is joined by the great HAZEL HENDERSON, legendary pioneer of the green economy.

 Hazel’s clarity and brilliance light up the airwaves as we tour through the rise of the alternative economy, green investing and much more.

 Hazel’s prescient work in renewable forecasting, ethical investing and sustainable finance has stood the test of a transitional time.

She now predicts ever greater things for the alternative worldview.  This hour flies by!!!

HAS THE SOUTH AGAIN RISEN TO DESTROY AMERICAN DEMOCRACY?

We talk with filmmakers DON GOLDMACHER and FRANCES CAUSEY, and with election protection activist JOHN BRAKEY about the lethal impact of southern reaction on our nation’s politics.

Goldmacher and Causey’s LONG SHADOW about slavery and its death grip on early America makes it clear that the poison has yet to dissipate.  Donald Trump is very much a toxic tumor reflecting what chattel bondage did to our American soul.

And as the Arizona-based Brakey emphasizes, the plague of electronic registration stripping and vote flipping has guaranteed the on-going power of rigged elections to degrade our lives and politics.

Trump’s recent bigoted endorsement of the racist, Indian-killing Andrew Jackson underscores the problem.

With the future of our democracy in deep crisis, don’t miss this spirited discussion on how the Confederacy has never really gone away.
