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.

Biography:

Richie Kohler's passion for technical scuba diving and maritime history has led him to explore some of the most challenging and dangerous shipwrecks in the world, including the Andrea Doria and HMHS Britannic. Exploring lost ships has led him to locate and help name numerous lost vessels, including the mine laying submarine U-215 on the Georges Banks off Nova Scotia, a WWII destroyer USS Murphy, crushed and forgotten in the New York approaches, and the 1800 steamship SS Peconic, a hurricane victim off the Georgia coast. But it would be the identification of an unknown WWII German U-Boat, the U-869 that would catapult his diving career into the world of television and documentary film making. Detailed in the NY Times best seller, Shadow Divers by Robert Kurson, this exciting story is slated to be a major motion picture by 20th Century Fox. Kohler, along with long time dive buddy John Chatterton, co-hosted the long running History Channel series, Deep Sea Detectives, and has worked on U/W film projects for Paramount Pictures, CBS, PBS, and the Discovery Channel.

World Changing Ideas

Author and venture capitalist Guy Kawasaki discussed world changing ideas, how they are born and why some succeed and others fail. At the root of a great idea, he said, "it has to enable you to do things you've always wanted to do. Or, even better, it should enable you to do things that you did not know you wanted to do."
