NH #315: Three Mile Island 2019 Shutdown – Exelon’s Promise or Threat? Scott Portzline of TMI Alert

This Week’s Featured Interview:

  • Scott Portzline, Cyber-Security advisor to Three Mile Island Alert, sorts through the verbiage and posturing around Exelon’s announcement that they’ll be shutting down the Three Mile Island in 2019.  Is it a promise or a threat to extract funds from Pennsylvania to keep on running?  Plus Scott updates us on Eric Epstein, TMI Alert’s esteemed and feared (by the nuclear industry) chair.
  • Just for giggles, a compilation of outtakes from Nuclear Hotseat over the past year.  Prepared for the 6th anniversary show (#312) but bumped to today’s 4th of July festivities.

Numnutz of the Week (for Nuclear Boneheadedness):

Clueless US Energy Secretary Rick Perry wants to make nuclear “cool” again.  Was it ever cool?  And what idiot ever thought so?
