There’s a push to remove the moratorium in Minnesota against developing nuclear power as s ource of energy.  We are hearing claims that it is a renewable energy source, and that it doesn’t produce carbon emissions.  When this podcast was actually being recorded (there was snow on the ground,) the Minnesota Legislature was in session.  So, yes, that’s a while ago.  But this is still relevant, and will be for the future.  There’s no guest on this show, because I am interviewing Greg Laden, who is the co-host and has been working on the issue so he has some expertise.
