The Debate at WHMP: Blog Post at ANS Nuclear Cafe

Denise Vozella, WHMP News Director
 Bob Flaherty, WHMP Morning Show Host
On April 24, Richard Schmidt and I debated Jeff Napolitano and Michael J. Daley on WHMP radio in Northampton, Massachusetts.  My blog post about this debate is up this morning at ANS Nuclear Cafe: Be Here Now and the Debate. You can also hear the debate on this page of the WHMP web site.  We are grateful for WHMP for hosting this event. 

I titled my post ANS post Be Here Now because a lot of the debate was about the nature of reality.  The opponents refused to admit that shutting down a nuclear plant meant encouraging fossil fuels. They didn't want to talk about the choices we make today.
