Nuclear weapons – a reminder of what they look like and what they can do.
This Week’s Featured Interview
- Nuclear weapons – their design, engineering, chances for implementation – that’s the topic we explore with Jay Coghlan, Executive Director of Nukewatch NM. Jay goes over the division of responsibility for nuclear weapons of mass destruction between Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Sandia Laboratory, and California’s Lawrence Livermore Lab. He then rips into Department of Energy for the lies and “theatre” surrounding claims of a “more-than-halfway-completed” so-called “clean-up” of LANL that ignores the vast majority of radioactive contamination… and ultimately is funding the new nuclear arms race.
Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):
Robots in charge of launching a nuclear attack? Artificial Intelligence (AI) just might decide that a world without humans is juuuuuust hunkey dorey!
- New Chris Busby website – www.chris.busby.exposed – tells the truth about this tireless British scientist. Chris is creating serious questions in the UK and beyond about the health effects of ionizing radiation and exposure to Uranium Weapons. And be sure to check out the Nuclear Hotseat interview with Chris Busby from Episode #333, November 7, 2017.
- Kevin Hester is a lifelong veteran of the eco-wars, with a fierceching, unflin attention to climate change and issues of human extinction. He currently produces and hosts the podcast Nature Bats Last, where he talks the difficult talk about the abrupt and exponential nature of global warming and the ultimate threat to human survival. But in this short interview (scroll down), we hear a different side of Kevin, about his life on a tiny New Zealand island and the real sense of community that sustains him. He’s been a staunch supporter of Nuclear Hotseat since our earliest days, and if you want to learn more about this important international activist, here’s a link to our interview on Nuclear Hotseat #233 from December 8, 2015.
