INTERVIEWS:

  • Leona Morgan  of Diné No Nukes is a Diné (“Navajo”) advocate for clean water, focused on protecting her people and the land from new uranium mining and nuclear developments in the Southwest, specifically around Navajo Nation plus lands within the Diné Four Sacred Mountains.  She explains the massive Churchrock uranium spill of 1979 and shares breaking news of radiation contamination of drinking water in Arizona, along with anti-nuclear actions being taken by indigenous people around the world.

  • Diane D’Arrigo of Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) on the current Petition in front of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to change radiation evaluation standards from current linear no-threshold to the false science of hormesis (no – whore-YOU-sis) which tries to fool people into believing that “radiation is GOOD for you!”
    Comments are needed before September 8 on the NRC website.  HERE’S HOW YOU DO IT:

Then give the NRC a piece of your mind.  You don’t have to make it fancy; they count number of responses more than the content.  MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD NOW!

NUMNUTZ OF THE WEEK

Ah, PBS – did you really have to sell your soul in order to keep your funding?  Why else would Nova not do the research necessary to provide a Murrow-quality exploration of Fukushima instead of repeating the pro-nuke party lie/line covering up its real and ongoing impact?  More propaganda to overcome.  Sigh…

 PLUS:

  • Japan pushing to restart Sendai nuclear reactor within weeks, despite thousands of protestors.
  • Lots more!
