If You Love This Planet interview with Kay Drey on how “routine emissions” from nuclear power plants slowly poison neighboring communities.
Dr. Caldicott interviews Kay Drey, a board member of Beyond Nuclear. Drey is also a board member of the Great Rivers Environmental Law Center. For nearly 40 years, she has researched the dangers of nuclear energy and nuclear waste, and advocated for the closure of nuclear plants and other uranium facilities. She was quite active in civil rights work before focusing on nuclear power. Drey and Dr. Caldicott discuss the widespread public health implications of so-called routine radioactive releases from nuclear power stations, in which many hazardous gases and fission byproducts are emitted during daily operations. Drey refers to a Beyond Nuclear pamphlet, Dirty, Dangerous and Expensive: The Truth is In About Nuclear Power. For more information, read Dr. Caldicott’s book Nuclear Power is Not the Answer which includes information from Drey’s studies.
