Would you be content with just $10 million? How about a wealth cap!

program: 
Presswatch
program date: 
Thu, 09/01/2011

 Theresa Mitchell with the news you're not supposed to know takes a deeper look at the nuclear crisis at Fukishima. Radioactive steam from cracks under the ground are suggesting major earthquake damage. The molten core is still fissioning--getting hotter--suggesting a "China Syndrome." The equivalent of 158 hiroshima bombs of cesium have been released. Theresa also takes a look at creating a solidarity movement here in Portland and putting the tiny minority of the super rich on notice that we've had enough, we're not going to be exploited any more.  A cap on wealth -- ten million max!  How would that work?

Helen Caldicott - Hiroshima to Fukushima (lecture)

The disaster at Fukushima  has thrust the dangers of nuclear power back in people’s consciousness. The idea of an industry renaissance had been carefully orchestrated by corporations that stand to make tons of money. Politicians, ever mindful of who funds their campaigns, have gone along. It was hailed as a clean and safe solution to addressing climate change and energy issues. An irony of the still unfolding tragedy is that it occurred in Japan, the only country to be attacked by nuclear weapons. The fallout from the fallout has spread around the world. Germany is planning to phase out nuclear power. What would happen if a tornado or some other extreme weather phenomenon hits a reactor? The U.S.
