Episode Description:

Host David Delk talks with environmental, anti-nuclear activist Lloyd Marbet about the latest nuclear danger, the Small Modular Reactors (SMR) being developed by NuScale, a spin-off company from Oregon State University. While smaller in size, these SMR still have the same dangers that older, larger nuclear plants have. We go on to discuss Oregon legislation, bill SB 990, which has passed the Senate. SB990 will essentially void Oregon law that no new nuclear plants be build in the state until a national nuclear depositary has been activated. Such a depositary does not exist. SB 990 would allow cities and counties to approve building of SMR within their boundaries, contrary to the 1980 initiative law forbidding them.
