Kevin Kamps on “Flashpoints”


imgres-2Following an appearance on an IPA news release, Kevin Kamps spoke of the fifth anniversary of Fukushima on KPFA’s “Flashpoints.” He explained that plans have largely failed to clean radioactive material from melted reactor cores. Contaminated water now poses a new threat were another earthquake to occur. According to experts, “Fukushima could easily be worse than Chernobyl, especially in the long term,” due to population density around the area. Kamps is with Beyond Nuclear, a leading U.S. anti-nuclear watchdog group on reactor oversight, health impacts and radioactive waste.
