Sidney J. Goodman, a professional engineer, and author of Asleep at the Geiger Counter(1) 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.
