Dr Helen Caldicott traveled to Oak Ridge, Tennessee as a guest of OREPA, the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance. Director of OREPA Ralph Hutchison took Dr Caldicott to the Y12 National Security Complex, which was involved in developing the nuclear weapons that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of the second world war. Currently operated by B&W Y12, the plant plays a 'vital role in the Department of Energy's Nuclear Weapons Complex.'
Ralph Hutchison has lived on the doorstep of the facility for many years, and he joins Dr Caldicott on If You Love This Planet to explain the capabilities - and dangers - of the Y12 plant.

Short Description: 
A cross-generational look back at 2008 and look ahead at 2009

What opportunities and challenges have the events of 2008 created for us in the coming year? Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein is joined by two college students - Justin Ralls and Ted Sweeney, whom she recently met at a Sellwood cafe - for a cross-generational conversation about how we create social movements for change in the current climate. How are these times similar to another crossroads era, the 1960s, yet how are they significantly different? This program continues the coffehouse conversation and opens it up to KBOO's listeners.

Portland Mayor-elect Sam Adams announced last week that the world's largest wind turbine company would be relocating to Portland. But some local media said he was jumping the gun.
The Portland Tribune warned Adams to avoid making the same mistake as former Mayor Vera Katz, who announced in 2002 that Vestas would be opening a manufacturing plant in Portland. But that manufacturing plant was never built.
The Tribune quoted Vestas spokesman Roby Roberts as saying hewas glad the mayor was excited, but the project was still being negotiated.
When Roberts spoke to KBOO's Jenka Soderberg today, however, he sounded optimistic about the plan.
