NH #248: Great Lakes Radionuclides w/Canada’s John Jackson, Diablo Cyn Legislation Update w/Jane Swanson

This Week’s Featured Interviews:

  • Veteran environmental activist John Jackson is author of the report issued on March 2 by the Canadian Environmental Law Association, calling for radionuclides to be designated by the US and Canada as a “chemical of mutual concern” under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. More than 100+ groups signed onto this report because they recognize the dangers of the high concentration of nuclear facilities that surround the largest surface fresh water repository in the world.  (Today’s featured image is the map showing all the known nuclear sites around the Great Lakes.)
  • Jane Swanson of San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace fills us in on the Diablo Canyon nukes, focusing on a piece of California state legislation that could inadvertently trigger support for keeping those dangerous, failing, earthquake-zone reactors open.CONTACT:  Sen. Ben Hueso,  (916) 651-4040   Tell him that you oppose CA Senate Bill 968 because it calls for examining only the negative aspects of closure of the dangerous Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors and not the positive impact of its closure.
