  • Fukushima Unit 4 a mere gasket failure away from catastrophe, while Unit 1 radiation is so high its dismantling (a 40 year process at best) will require robot technology that has not  yet been invented;
  • Federal appellate court sinks Vermont’s recent strategy to deny Entergy’s Vermont Yankee re-license;
  • Colorado’s Rocky Flats $926 million judgment struck down;
  • South Korea bans 35 Japanese seafood products, bringing their total to 64 (the US bans NONE);
  • Contact info from last week’s interviewee, environment attorney Susan Hito Shapiro, for anti-nuke lawyers who want to support and strategize with each other: phaseattorney@gmail.com;
