Terra Verde - August 4, 2006

On the 61st anniversary of the first atomic bombing, Terra Verde interviews Keiji Tsuchiya, a Hiroshima atomic bomb survivor, who served as a rescue worker in the week immediately following the bombing. Now at age 78 he is Vice President of Okayama A-bomb Sufferers Association. We will also be joined by Tara Dorabji of Tri-Valley CAREs who will talk about nuclear testing in the Bay area and the role of companies like Bechtel, which has built more than half of the nuclear facilities in the United States.

Bechtel is partnered with the University of California to manage the Los Alamos nuclear weapons lab in New Mexico. The company is also now poised to announce its intent to bid for the management contract of the Livermore nuclear weapons lab. The contract for the Livermore Lab is up for competitive bid for the first time in its 53-year history.
