The Beast that Wouldn't Die: Untangling the Web of Nuclear Lies, Corruption and Criminal Activities 


Tonight, Political Analysis host Sandy LeonVest puts her head together with disaster-preparedness adviser and human rights activist Chuck McCune and nuclear power oracle Michael Mariotte to unravel the web of nuclear lies, corruption and criminality that plagues the nuclear industry. They discuss Fukushima, the lack of preparedness in the US for a nuclear accident, reactor deficiencies -- and the industry's relationship with US officials and representatives.

Michael Mariotte is the executive director of the Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS). You can learn more about him, or almost anything to do with nuclear power (esp safety and security issues) at www.nirs.org

Chuck McCune is a longtime human rights advocate and a disaster preparedness expert. He has advised numerous federal agencies, including FEMA, DHS and others. He is the founder of the Prizm Foundation (www.prizm.org), which helps communities -- esp low income communitites -- prepare for natural and not-so-natural disasters.
