February Energy Week: Scientists and Activism | Dark Money Pushing Nuclear

Wednesday, 8 February 2023 - 9:00am to 10:00am

 This week is City Limits' Energy episode! First up, we listen to an excerpt from Democracy Now! featuriing earth scientist, ecologist, and activist Rose Abramoff, who was fired by her employer, the US Government, after incidents of high profile protesting, calling for her colleagues take direct action against climate change. Rose is a member of Scientist Rebellion, an organisation advocating for actions such as civil disobedience, and obvious policy solutions backed by data. 

 Kevin and Zeb follow this interview with a general comment and discussion with Dave Sweeney (nuclear-free campaigner, Australian Conservation Foundation), who discusses the disturbing and pervasive power of industry, at direct odds with irrefutable scientific fact. He describes the work of the ACF in tracking democracy, when "dark money in Australian politics is on the rise".

 Dave echoes Abramoff's sentiment to "remove the power, legitimacy and funding of the fossil fuel sector", drawing parallels with nuclear sector Australia: "justifications" for the push for nuclear energy & weaponry, muddying the waters, severity and longevity of risk-factors, and heaps more. 

 To find out more and get involved, check out the anti-nuclear webpages of Friends of the Earth and the Australian Conservation Foundation, as well as 3CR's own Radioactive Show.
