The nuclear industry in PA is asking for at least $500 million a year to bailout their industry. What are the tradeoffs, including the use of nuclear power to lower greenhouse gases?
This may be a crucial time for PA to decide which direction its energy policy goes. Tune in to Planet Philadelphia 4-5 pm Friday 4/5/19 on WGGT-LP 92.9 FM Germantown Community Radio and streaming at gtownradio.com to hear why that is.
Tim Judson is the Executive Director of Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS), a nonprofit networking hub for people and organizations concerned about nuclear power. In addition he is chair of the Board of Citizens Awareness Network, a leader in the successful campaign to close the Vermont Yankee reactor. He also was co-founder of Alliance for a Green Economy in New York. Tim will talk about his view of the bailout proposal (which has been evolving in an ongoing way) and his thoughts about nuclear power.
