John Schoonover, PhD. (https://www.greanvillepost.com/2020/11/15/bidens-energy-policy-fantasies-and-reality/) joins us to discuss the myths and benefits of nuclear power as cited in his recent article, Biden’s Energy Policy - a Lost Opportunity. He delves into the deliberate conflation of bombs and energy by Big Oil in order to de-legitimize nuclear power over the last five decades. You’re going to need an open mind for this one. You don’t know what you don’t know… John Schoonover, PhD is a social critic and geopolitical analyst whose essays are published in leading progressive sites, including Socialist Planning Beyond Capitalism, The Greanville Post and others. Schoonover cut his activist teeth in the Civil Rights and Anti-Vietnam War movements. The latter earned him 9 years of exile in Canada evading both the draft and an indictment. Freed of these burdens during the late seventies, he returned to the US and continued as a socialist organizer. His PhD in nuclear physics and his socialist outlook led him to advocate the expanded use of nuclear energy, despite the growing propaganda war against it. After several decades in France pursuing a career in computer security, Schoonover returned to the US, where he is actively organizing for a socialist solution to the current crisis.
