  • Roxanne Pappas Radio: Wicked Green Energy Lady: The Fate of Nuclear Reactors

    in Environment

    It's been a few months since we chatted with the Director of the Cape Downwinders, Diane Turco.  Since then the power station continued a downhill spiral from a forced 12-day shutdown caused by electrical problems.  In mid October Entergy Corp announced it would close the plant by June 2019.


    Diane is advocating for a closure far sooner than 2019 because the public's safety is in even greater danger since Entergy has no incentive to invest money to maintain the plant. 


    We'll hear what is being done to speed up the decommissioning process and how it can be done safely.


     


    Diane Turco is a retired special education teacher and lives in Harwich, MA. After learning of the threat from the Pilgrim nuclear reactor to the public and environment in the late 1980s and the lack of protection for the public at the state and federal level, she began to work for public safety and continues to investigage, educate and agitate for the closings of nuclear reactors.


    The mission of Cape Downwinders is to take action to protect the lives and welfare of the residents of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket against the threat of injury or death resulting from the production of nuclear power at the Pilgrim reactor in Plymouth. 


    About The Host: Roxanne Pappas is the Host of Wicked Green Energy, a show, dedicated to educating individuals about cutting edge green choices for the sustainability of our planet. She is also, an Independent Associate with Viridian Energy, a company that provides power from solar, wind and water generated here is the US,  directly to you, right now.

    "PACS: Parent Against Closing of Schools-Outrage in the Bronx"

    in Lifestyle

    School closings, the newest thorn in the side of quality public school education for minorities and poor families, are on the hotseat tonight. Tonight, I will be interviewing Bronx, NY's super advocating parent, Bonnie Heffner...who has begun a petition to stop an unjust attempt by the City of New York to close a Bronx school without giving the new principle even a year's tenure in her position. The officials are using old school data, and scrutinizing the struggles of the school caused by deliberate withholding of funding to the school as justification for the impending decision to close a school kids and parents feel is actually doing well. I encourage any NYC parent, ESPECIALLY the parents of the Foreign Language Academy of Global Studies (FLAGS) High School in Bronx, NY to call in and join in the on-air petition created by fellow parent Bonnie Heffner. Listen in and/or join in by calling 347-327-9967 at 10:30 PM EST.
