WILL COVID BE OUR ULTIMATE ATOMIC TERRORIST?

The world’s atomic power reactors—our future Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushimas—depend on an ever-shrinking work force. 

That rare crew of skilled technicians is now threatened by the Coronavirus Pandemic, which in turn threatens the future of our entire species.

We are joined by top experts MAGGIE GUNDERSEN and ARNIE GUNDERSEN of Fairewinds along with PAUL GUNTER of Beyond Nuclear.

These uniquely informed experts take us on a terrifying tour of a corrupt, decayed industry now being decimated by COVID.

Because students have long since ceased entering the industry, the skilled laborers operating, refueling and repairing these nukes is aging and retiring.

COVID is further decimating their ranks.  Given the small size of control rooms, and the realities of making repairs, social distancing is not possible.

The operators “jumpers” and “sponges” are wearing out.

Be sure to be sitting down when you listen to this terrifying and apocalyptic discussion.
