Last Show Recap

Russia Relations

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.

Russia Relations

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - September 27, 2008
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: David Hagberg, Jim Marrs

Ian was joined by writer David Hagberg, who talked about the former Soviet Union, US-Russia relations, and the Russian military mindset.

Hagberg said Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has been using petrodollars to re-modernize Russia's military and refurbish their nuclear weapons. Though he does not expect a shooting war to break out between Russia and United States anytime soon, Hagberg did express fear that we may once again find ourselves in a nuclear standoff with Russia. The future of war is economic, Hagberg continued, noting how the United States bankrupted the former Soviet Union by focusing on defense spending.

Hagberg also discussed the recent conflict between Georgia and Russia, America's "provocative" anti-missile system in Poland, and Russia's claim to natural resources in the North Pole, as well as his book, Mutiny: The True Events That Inspired The Hunt For Red October. Hagberg co-wrote the book with Boris Gindin, a former Soviet naval officer who was aboard the Russian warship Storozhevoy when a mutiny was led by Captain Valery Sablin. The events inspired Tom Clancy's blockbuster novel, The Hunt for Red October

Election Suspension?

First hour guest, author Jim Marrs discussed the federal bailout plan, and a possible suspension of this year's presidential election. Marrs acknowledged that the November 4th elections could be postponed by President Bush, but believes they will go on as planned. Marrs suggested voters write in Congressman Ron Paul instead of voting for either of the democrat or republican presidential candidates.
