Excellent interview, such interesting background to explain where we are now with nuclear power and nuclear weapons. What’s striking me is the need to repeat the same information to new generations of nuclear advocates who know nothing about past experiences. We see this in Canada with politicians and political advisors who admit openly that they learned everything they know about nuclear energy from the nuclear industry! Voices like Frank von Hippel remain vital for our current times.
