Arjun Makhijani on the Nuclear Power Fiasco

program: 
Locus Focus
program date: 
Tue, 03/03/2009

Thirty years ago this country's nuclear program came to a halt after the disasterous accident and meltdown at the Three Mile Island nuclear facility in Pennsylvania. Since then we are still debating how to safely store in perpetuity countless tons of high level radioactive waste that is the legacy of this program that once promised "energy too cheap to meter," but resulted in massive cost-overuns and environmental hazards. So why has the nuclear option returned to the table as we look for alternatives to carbon emitting climate changing fossil fuels? What forgotten lessons of the 1970s do we need to remember? Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein is joined by Arjun Makhijani, president of the Institute for Energy & Environmental Research, for a discussion about why nuclear power is no better an idea now than it was thirty years. We also talk about who is promoting nuclear power and why

Soccer fields vs. social services: The real cost of urban renewal districts.

program date: 
Wed, 03/04/2009

Next week the Portland City Council starts to consider an $85 million proposal by Merritt Paulson to bring major league soccer to Portland. Paulson wants the city to contribute $20-$40 million of urban renewal money - funds intended to combat "urban blight" - to close the deal. The Portland Development Commission's advisory task force has just completed a review that recommends conditional approval. Paulson and his supporters say those dollars will create jobs and enhance the community. Critics not only say that soccer doesn't qualify but that its diverting funds from essential county services.
