Reactors at risk: Nuclear Hotseat


Dr. Edwin Lyman of Union of Concerned Scientists is this week’s interview on Nuclear Hotseat

How many reactors are there in war-torn Ukraine and how great are the risks they now face in these extreme conditions? This week on Nuclear Hotseat, host Libbe HaLevy asks Edwin Lyman, Director of Nuclear Power Safety with the Union of Concerned Scientists, just how bad it could get. Lyman specializes in nuclear proliferation, nuclear terrorism, and nuclear power safety and has published extensively in journals and magazines, testified before Congress and advised other government groups, and has been cited as an expert source in news stories in major media.

And, as also highlighted in this week’s Beyond Nuclear Bulletin, Greenpeace has tested radiation dose levels around the Chornobyl site after it was occupied by the invading Russian forces for a month, finding levels three times higher than those reported by the IAEA — the subject of Linda Pentz Gunter’s Hot Story this week.
