Political Analysis - No Nukes: Not Now, Not Later, Not ever — Here’s Why - 03/12/13
Mar 12th, 2013 by progressiveradionetwork at 5:00 pm
On tonight's Political Analysis, Sandy LeonVest airs live audio clips from the March 11, 2011 nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi.

Sandy is joined later in the hour by Harvey Wasserman for a discussion on the future of nuclear power, with Sandy worrying that the newly released report coming from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), predicting that nuclear power will continue to grow worldwide, does not bode well for our collective futures, and a more optimistic Harvey arguing that, all things considered, this is a very unlikely scenario.
