Harvey Wasserman, Solartopia/The Strip & Flip Selection Of 2016: Five Jim Crows & Electronic Election Theft joins Thom. In nuke news…When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo first announced his Clean Energy Standard back in December – it certainly sounded great. After all – under the Governor’s plan – the Empire State was set to get 50 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2030. It soon became clear – however – that Governor Cuomo had a very – very different understanding of “renewable” energy” than most of the rest of us. Although he did put forward plans to boost the amount of energy New York gets from solar and wind power – the Governor’s Clean Energy Standard also included plans to prop up New York’s failing and dangerous nuclear power sector.
