SPECIAL: U-Chicago Atomic Propaganda Orgy Decoded by Fairewinds’ Arnie Gundersen & NEIS – Errors, Omissions & Lies, Oh My! – via Nuclear Hotsat

The University of Chicago produced a month-long orgy of pro-nuclear self-congratulations to celebrate the first atomic pile, the chain reaction which started our collective nuclear nightmare.  The events culminated in a Symposium, “Nuclear Reaction,”  held on December 1, 2017, featuring relentless pro-nuclear propaganda.

Nuclear Hotseat was there to cover the events through the eyes of those who know enough to oppose nuclear, along with NEIS-sponsored events presented as a counterbalance.

  • Arnie Gundersen, Chief Engineer, Fairewinds Energy Education
  • Dave Kraft, Executive Director, Nuclear Energy Information Service (NEIS)

  • NEIS Board Members and Activists, including Gail Snyder, Jan Boudart, Steven Sondheim (NEIS member, Sierra Club Nuclear Free Campaign).

Numnutz of the Week (For Nuclear Boneheadedness):

Fireworks?!?  Shaped like a mushroom cloud?!?  Exploded over the site of the first atomic pile, which led to all the rest of the nuclear madness?!?  Someone needs to explain “mixed metaphor” to those numnutz at the U of C!
