Nuclear-Free Earth – Is it possible? Veteran journalist Karl Grossman lays out the options.
This Week’s Featured Interview:
- Nuclear-Free Earth – can we achieve it? Karl Grossman provides the vision. He is an author and journalism professor at the State University of New York/College at Old Westbury, and host of the television program Enviro Close-Up with Karl Grossman. Karl is the author of six books – so far – and writer of numerous magazine, newspaper and Internet articles. He has been covering nuclear issues for over 50 years, and in terms of knowing how things came about and where the bodies are buried – that’s a metaphor, we hope – nobody does it better. Karl has been an important early and consistent supporter of Nuclear Hotseat, and we talk with him here about the need to make Earth a nuclear-free zone. We talked on January 12, 2020.
