Who's profiting from nuclear power?

On the next Your Call, we'll talk about the economics of the nuclear power industry. President Obama sees nuclear power as an integral part of a "green" energy plan. And the US government continues to subsidize nuclear power from 13 percent to 98 percent of the value of the power produced, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. We know that anyone can suffer the consequences from nuclear disasters, but who reaps the riches from this industry? Join us at 10 or send an email to feedback@yourcallradio.org. Whose interest does nuclear power really benefit? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
