Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good afternoon, welcome to Radioactivityâ€¦. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up weâ€™ll meet a group of veterans who say that Americaâ€™s dependence on oilâ€”especially imported oil is a national security issue.
Later weâ€™ll hear about the impact of Third Parties on American history.
But first, one listener comment about last Thursdayâ€™s program on which we talked about the competing rallies scheduled in Washington DC last weekend: One sponsored by radio talk show host Glenn Beck and the others sponsored by civil rights activists.
First up today: climate change and US dependence on imported oil are national security issues, according to our guests who are military veterans and members of Operation Free. Members of the group have been touring the country and meeting with members of congress to put the country on a path to clean energy.
Our guests are Col. Dan Nolan, US Army (retired). Col. Nolan is a 26 year veteran of the US Army and current resident of Tampa.
During his military career, Col. Nolan commanded the 1st Armored Division Artillery in Germany and Kosovo as well as served as principal advisor to General Tommy Franks at U.S. Central Command.
Lt. Gen. Norman Seip, USAF (ret.) * Depending on his flight that morning** Lt. Gen.
