Oconee Nuclear reactors – all three of them – will be in the water pathway if there is a breach at the Jocassee Dam, only 12 miles away. That would be the equivalent of
SIX Mississippi Rivers in a wall of water 19 feet high. Can you say… “Fukushima?”
This Week’s Featured Interview:
- Oconee Nuclear reactors at risk of inland tsunami from Jocassee Dam – Paul Gunter has been a critic of nuclear power for over 30 years. He is an energy policy analyst and activist who worked as the Director of the Reactor Watchdog Project for Nuclear Information and Resource Service for almost 20 years. In 2007, he joined Beyond Nuclear as their Nuclear Reactor Specialist, and that’s where he’s been ever since. We spoke on Monday, October 4, 2021.

Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):
