Glacier National Park glaciers disappearing/Floating nuclear power plants

May 26, 2017
The glaciers of Glacier National Park in Montana could be gone in our lifetime. A report from the US Geological Survey says they’ve already
shrunk by 40 percent in the last 50 years. Daniel Fagre’s a research ecologist with the USGS’s Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center
says their fate is sealed and they’ll be gone in the coming years.
There’ve been reports of floating nuclear power plants being developed by China in order to power islands in the South China Sea. Are these
“floating Chernobyls” or an example of a viable power source that we could learn from in the US. David Lochbaum is the Director of the Nuclear Safety Project with the Union of Concerned Scientists.
