5/30/18: Beyond Nuclear on Loud & Clear

Today's show discussion between Loud & Clear radio show and podcast hosts Brian Becker and John Kiriakou, and Beyond Nuclear's radioactive waste watchdog Kevin Kamps, includes such subject matter as the deep corruption associated with FirstEnergy Nuclear's emergency petition to President Trump and Energy Secretary Perry (as reported on by Bloomberg and AP), the inextricable links between nuclear power and nuclear weapons from the very beginning, as documented in Dr. Arjun Makhijani's 1999 book The Nuclear Power Deception; and the deep corruption first revealed by the Wall Street Journal, re: a Chattanooga billionaire's attempt to revive the zombie Bellafonte nuclear power plant in Alabama, by contracting with Trump's infamous lawyer Michael Cohen, as well as attempting to secure financing from Qatar.
