Last Show Recap

In the first half of the program, George Knapp welcomed nuclear power expert, Arnie Gundersen, who discussed how, more than four years after the triple meltdown at Fukushima, nuclear waste inside the reactors continues to bleed into the Pacific Ocean creating low concentrations of radioactivity that have already migrated across the Pacific to the west coast of North America. Steven Starr of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation briefly joined the conversation during the second hour.

In the latter half, former Nevada consumer advocate and public utility commissioner Timothy Hay addressed the attempt by power companies to crush rooftop solar energy by throwing up roadblocks to make it harder for homeowners to install, and how electric companies hate the idea of clean, plentiful solar taking away their business.

Genome Brings Ancient Girl to Life

Genome Brings Ancient Girl to Life

A team of scientists has accomplished a stunning technical achievement by sequencing the entire genome of a Siberian girl who lived more than 50,000 years ago. Genetic material from a tiny finger bone (pictured) yielded a complete picture of the ancient girl, revealing details such as eye, hair, and skin color. The breakthrough has allowed scientists to study the slight genetic changes that make up modern humans. More at wired.com.
