NH #475: Nukegate in Ohio: Nuclear Bailout Scandal – Attorney Terry Lodge Explains

Nukegate in Ohio:  Activists against Ohio’s bailout of failing nuclear reactors were gamed out of their referendum to block it in 2019.  Now, there’s a scandal with criminal indictments against the Ohio House of Representatives Speaker Larry Householder for taking First Energy money (aka “bribes”).  This may show the way to bailout reversal.  Attorney Terry Lodge speaks to all aspects of the issue on this week’s show.

This Week’s Featured Interview:

An advocate for the public interest in energy policy issues, he has litigated nuclear power safety and environmental issues for 40 years. Lodge has also represented opponents of nuclear weapons and mountaintop removal mining. This man knows where the metaphoric bodies are buries and here, he proceeds to dig up a whole bunch of them.

  • Sign-on to NIRS letter telling the NRC and Congress:  NO NUCLEAR WASTE IN OUR LANDFILLS!
    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is planning a very dangerous change to the way radioactive waste is handled. Some man-made nuclear waste, mainly from nuclear power, is very long-lasting and dangerous to human health and the environment.  Disregarding this danger, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission proposes to let regular landfill operators dispose of this radioactive waste by authorizing them as “specific exempt.” This would almost certainly result in nuclear waste leaks into our water, air, crops, and communities.

Tell the NRC and your members of Congress: Don’t dump radioactive waste into our landfills or any other places that are “exempt” from nuclear controls.  CLICK HERE.

Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):

Just a peach full of sugar helps the radiation go down… and the pro-2021 Olympics propaganda push to “normalize” Fukushima to the rest of the world go out in manipulated media. Rotten to the core…

Not a picture of an actual Fukushima peach, but you get the idea…
