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.

Louise Richardson

Special Guest

Biography:

Louise Richardson is one of the world's experts on international security and terrorism. She brings years of cutting-edge study to What Terrorists Want, an accessible, coherent, and persuasive argument that provocatively overturns the myths surrounding terrorism. Drawing on personal contact with terrorists, she shows how terrorists justify their acts to themselves, their families, and their communities. Weaving together the words of terrorists from Sri Lanka and London to Belfast and Baghdad, she demonstrates how the very human desire for Revenge/Renown/Reaction has driven otherwise normal people to become terrorists. Louise Richardson is the Executive Dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and former associate professor of Government at Harvard University. A political scientist by training, her academic focus has been on international security with an emphasis on terrorist movements.
