Host Margaret Harrington speaks with Kevin Kamps, NuclearWaste Watchdog of Beyond Nuclear, about nuclear weapons and nuclear power issues facing the Trump Administration.
Kevin Kamps zeroes in on issues faced by the Trump administration regarding nuclear weapons and nuclear power in the United States and globally. There is the 75 year buildup of nuclear waste which is the legacy of the Cold War. That is stored at WIPP, the Waste Isolation Pilot Program in Carlsbad, New Mexico. There is the Savannah River Nuclear site where radioactive turtles and alligators swim in waters that flow into drinking water sources. There are spent fuel containers at every nuclear reactor site in the United States. Then there is the disaster zone of Fukushima Daichi, Japan where nuclear waste sits in plastic garbage bags.
