(KCPW News) The debate over nuclear power is not just a theoretical one in Utah, with a former state lawmaker trying to build a nuclear plant along the state’s Green River and a radioactive waste storage facility located not far from Salt Lake City. That makes it a fitting place for journalist and nuclear expert Jonathan Schell, author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated book The Fate of the Earth, who’s speaking Wednesday morning at a breakfast fundraiser for HEAL Utah. Schell recently wrote on how President Dwight D. Eisenhower helped pave the way for nuclear power. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson asked him how Eisenhower’s efforts led to nuclear plants being built in the 1950s.
