Nuclear Fox Hervé Courtois & Nuclear Hotseat’s Libbe HaLevy @ the Window Rock of Window Rock AZ
This Week’s Featured Interview:
- Nuclear Fox – Hervé Courtois of France, aka D’un Renard, or “The Fox” – has been a steadfast provider of reliable nuclear news, especially from Fukushima, since the first months after the disaster began in 2011. After many years of trying, at the International Uranium Film Festival, Libbe HaLevy succeeded in cornering him for an interview on why he became so involved with providing nuclear news, and what keeps him going.

Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):
Nuclear disaster? Radiation? Contamination of Japanese food? Fukushima sake in Manhattan? I’ll drink to that! (… or NOT…)
- Public Comment needed on Department of Energy’s proposal to abandon high-level radioactive wastes in situ – meaning right where it is now, on site at reactors and on already contaminated lands.
- LA Times article on Marco Kaltofen: “Hidden Danger: Radioactive Dust is Found in Communities Around Nuclear Weapons”
- For the dust testing protocols after the Woolsey Fire, CLICK HERE.
Key facts to remember:
- Protect yourself from the dust and dirt with a mask and clothing that can be easily washed or even thrown away.
- Do NOT simply send in to Fairewinds; you MUST get approval and registration with them or your sample will be disposed of without being opened.
- The results will take at least 5 months, if not longer, to show up. This is because of the intensity of the testing program and the number of steps that must be taken. BE PATIENT. When you get the data, it will be solid and scientific.
