Part 1-5: A busload of people from Western North Carolina left Asheville before dawn to speak out at a hearing of the Department of Energy's Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future, held January7, 2011 in Augusta, Georgia. The Asheville folk wanted to speak, among other things, against the dangers of driving through the mountains in all weathers, transporting high-level nuclear waste to, from, and between Oak Ridge, TN and Savannah River, SC. At the end of the all-day session, when local Chambers of Commerce and employees (ex- and current) of the Savannah River Site spoke of profits and "safety," 57 people from SC, GA, and NC, were given 2 minutes each to express their opinions. There are 5 sections to this upload, with a total of 23 comments.

Michael Mariotte, executive director of NIRS, speaks against the resurgence of nuclear power and the proposed new Calvert Cliffs atomic reactor, at Ani DiFranco show at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, Maryland, November 10, 2007.  

Michael Mariotte, NIRS Executive Director, talks about the many reasons that the claim - made by such pundits as James Lovelock and Stewart Brand - that a crash buildout of a new generation of nuclear power plants is a rational and necessary response to global climate change is a dangerous fallacy. He ticks off the list of counter-arguements - including waste storage, cost overruns, terrorism and nuclear weapons proliferation - and builds the cast for using our dwindling resources to develop renewable energy sources, rather than squander them on a 'nuclear power renaissance' which is doomed to fail.

 

Mary Olson, NIRS Southeast Director

On October 23, 2007 Nukefree.org joined with three key U.S. Representatives and speakers from the core of the environmental movement to denounce an attempt to guarantee some $50 billion for building new nuclear power plants. Spearheaded by musicians Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne and Graham Nash, the group delivered some 120,000 signatures to Congress asking that there be no government funding for new atomic reactors.

         
   

Diane D'Arrigo, NIRS Radioactive Waste Project Director, talks about the mounting risks from radioactive waste and the many reasons that the claim that a new generation of nuclear power plants is a necessary response to global climate change is a dangerous fallacy. She summarizes the findings in a NIRS report she recently co-authored with Mary Olson, OUT OF CONTROL...ON PURPOSE: DOE's Dispersal of Radioactive Waste Into Landfills and Consumer Products.
