Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Our guest for this hour is Harvey Wasserman, a journalist, author, democracy activist, and advocate for renewable energy. He has been a strategist and organizer in the anti-nuclear movement in the United States for more than 30 years. Wasserman is senior advisor to Greenpeace USA and the Nuclear Information and Resource Service, an investigative reporter, and senior editor of The Columbus Free Press where he covered allegations of widespread voting improprieties in Ohio in the 2004 Presidential election.
In 1973 he helped pioneer the global grassroots movement against atomic reactors, and helped coin the phrase "No Nukes" in 1974. He was a media spokesperson for the Clamshell Alliance, and helped organize mass demonstrations at Seabrook, N.H. against reactors being built there. His latest project is envisioning a future in which clean energy replaces polluting fuels. http://www.solartopia.org/
