    Today [Wednesday, October 30, 2013], The Games Began in Monroe Michigan as the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Atomic Safety and Licensing Board (NRC ASLB) started hearings on Detroit Edison’s "Fermi 3 Licensing Project". Outgunned? Fairewinds’ Arnie Gundersen and the seven expert witnesses retained by the NRC staff and Detroit Edison agree that there was no Quality Assurance (QA) program in place for two years as required by federal law, but the seven industry experts say build it anyway! Damn the safety regulations; full speed ahead to the pork-barrel federal loan guarantees to build a one of a kind Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactor. Listen as Maggie, Arnie, and host Nathaniel White-Joyal discuss the stacked deck on this week’s Fairewinds Energy Education Podcast.

This is the video of that event. The talk centered around NRC’s response to the continuing nuclear crisis in Japan, as well as the public’s renewed safety concerns about America’s fleet of aging nuclear power plants, 23 of which share the same General Electric design as the ones at Fukushima.

                  On December 5th, 2012, Greenpeace nuclear analyst Shawn-Patrick Stensil told the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) its environmental review of the Darlington nuclear station ignored the realistic potential for major reactor accidents. Stensil presented documents from Ontario Power Generation outlining the risks of large accidental radiation releases at Darlington. CNSC staff and OPG staff did not deny the existence of these studies or the possibility for large scale accidents.
