This one-hour presentation by Harvey Wasserman (nukefree.org) was taped in Garrison, New York, near the Indian Point reactors. Wasserman emphasizes that one of the jets that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11 passed just moments before over the Indian Point nuclear plant complex and if that plane had crashed into Indian Point, a nuclear catastrophe would have resulted. Some 300,000 people, at least, would have died immediately and millions would have lost their lives from the spread of radioactive poisons in the most populated area of the United States. The continuing threat of terrorist attack is one of the main reasons, declares Wasserman, that atomic power plants must be shut down and safe energy technologies now "on the shelf" and widely available be must be implemented. EnviroVideo #220 (59 minutes) 2002
A EnviroVideo produces environmental and social justice programs for television - including interview and news shows, specials, and documentaries. The underlying premise of EnviroVideo is that there are critical environmental issues at hand that can best be communicated to large numbers of people through the media most favored for news and information - television and the Internet. And if there is broad public awareness, pressing environmental matters can be dealt with and action taken to truly resolve them.
