Earth Guardian – Bloated Nuclear Projects Mean You Pay More for Electricity. What is the True Cost of Nuclear Generated Electricity?
My guest on the Earth Guardian is Jack Gibbons, Chair of the Ontario Clean Air Alliance, a coalition of individuals and approximately 90 organizations (health, environmental, faith communities, municipalities, utilities, unions, and corporations) that represent over six million supporters).
