This Week’s Featured Interview:

Dr. Jim Green is Nuclear Campaigner for Friends of the Earth in Australia.  What’s that country’s culpability for Fukushima?  How does the country function as a “nuclear umbrella” for the US?  How racist are Australia’s nuclear mining policies?  And was “On the Beach” right, is it really safer from radiation Down Under than in the Northern Hemisphere?  All that and more…

  • EVIL NUMNUTZ:  Japan’s National Cancer Institute releases a comic book that tells children that half of them will get cancer but they need to practice “prevention.”  Blame the victim much?
