Nuclear Power Problems

Show Archive
Date: Monday - March 24, 2003
Host: George Noory
Guests: Clovis Maksoud, Sidney J. Goodman, John L. Loeb, John M. Curtis

Sidney J. Goodman, a professional engineer, and author of Asleep at the Geiger Counter was the main guest during Monday's regular broadcast time. "In the beginning anyone who criticized the nuclear power industry became known as a kook," said Goodman whose book documents serious problems and misrepresentations in the field.

"It would be a tragedy of the worst dimension because radioactivity is the ultimate pollution," Goodman said of the possibility that a nuclear plant would be sabotaged as part of a terrorist attack. He believes alternative sources of energy such as wind and solar should be more fully funded as nuclear plants are gradually decommissioned.

John L. Loeb Jr. the former Ambassador to Denmark, was the guest during the first hour. "I'm afraid this is a deep cultural divide that none of us understood," Loeb said of the rift between Islam and the West. George opened up the lines during the last hour of the show for people to sound off on various issues.

Early Feed: War Analysis

George hosted another special broadcast on Monday night. On the early feed Ambassador Clovis Maksoud, a Lebanese national and former Chief Representative of the League of Arab States was the first guest. Maksoud posited that while the Iraqi people don't necessarily support Saddam, they will back him rather than the US in order to stand up for their civilization. "Let us try to talk with each other rather than at each other," he suggested as part of the solution to the current conflict.

Next up was John M. Curtis of onlinecolumnist, who commented on the military spin on both sides of the equation. Calling Saddam "a master propagandist," Curtis said Hussein's latest speech was meant to inspire his troops using Islamic metaphors. He believes that the fighting is soon going to deteriorate into guerilla warfare with Baghdad becoming "a Jonestown, a death trap, a nightmarish environment."
