This week Em checks in with Jim Green to get an overview of the current state of affairs around nuclear energy, waste and weapons in Australia. Recent months have seen far-right politicians like Tony Abbott and Clive Palmer push once again for Australians to adopt nuclear power - even though the science and economics tell us nuclear is on the way out worldwide. We talk about the changing energy system, radioactive racism, nuclear dumps and why Australia doesn't need nuclear power.
