Peter Turrell who is the Director Millennium Institution joined the show to talk about the current problems with Nuclear power, he spoke about the long term dangers of the nuclear plants all over the world and how we have not needed them for decades. There have been numerous accidents with nuclear plants since the inception of nuclear power and the danger may not be worth the power we receive from the plants as there are other sources of energy we could tap into without the inherent danger that exists today with nuclear power.
We spoke about Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster and how if Chernobyl wasn’t a wakeup call then Fukushima should be. We spoke about inappropriate values and how our society puts greed & political lobbying above the harm done to the planet that will be a problem for generations to come.
