Greenlight: nuclear expansion in Ontario (Feb. 10, 2009)
The expansion of nuclear power in Ontario comes despite the ongoing questions raised by organizations and individuals as to the impacts on the environment. This week, Krystyn and Mark look at the refurbishment of Pickering B nuclear power plant. Guests include Shawn Patrick Stencil of Greenpeace, US Attorney Reed Super, Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Helen Caldicott, and Dr. Gordon Edwards of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility.
We are also proud to unveil our new theme song, The kids don’t get it, graciously donated by the Tragically Hip (available on The Hip’s album World Container).
Music on this week’s show:
The kids don’t get it - The Tragically Hip
Burning and Lootin’ - Bob Marley and the Wailers
You can’t Blame the Youth - Bob Marley and the Wailers
Stop that train - Bob Marley and the Wailers
Get up, Stand up - Bob Marley and the Wailers
