The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Nuclear Hotseat #136: DC Smackdown! Resnikoff on NRC/High Burn-up Fuel, NIRS’ D’Arrigo on EPA/Radiation



INTERVIEWS:  First-hand reports on the recent meetings between  anti-nuclear activists and top level reps of the NRC, EPA and Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.

  • Dr. Marvin Resnikoff, Senior Associate at Radioactive Waste Management Associates, has been an international consultant on radioactive waste management for decades.  He met with NRC Chair Alison Macfarlane and Commissioners Magwood and Apostolakis and really burned them up with the hard facts of what they don’t know about high burn-up nuclear fuel in their own reactors!
  • Diane D’Arrigo, Radioactive Waste Project Director for Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) explains how she took on the EPA over their inability to take radiation readings on the California coast after Fukushima — and perhaps it was something other than incompetence?

  1. Libbe HaLevy does such a good job on her interviews.

    More people need to listen to her interviews.

    On this interview, Mr. Resnikoff talked about how unknowledgeable the NRC is about this issue and how they’re flying by the seat of their pants!

    Ms. D’Arrigo discussed asking the EPA to put radiation detectors around all the facilities which would provide information available for everyone.

    You know, good people like Mr. Resnikoff and Ms. D’Arrigo unselfishly spend their time and money looking out for all of us.

    They are unsung heroes, imho, as are all the good people who unselfishly do the same.
