This is a sneak peek of "After the Worst," an interview with Fairewinds' Arnie Gundersen that will air on RadioShock.org later this week. Following Arnie, host Alex Smith interviews Naomi Klein, who discusses the climate change movement.

In the first half of Arnie's interview, he focuses on the Fukushima Daiichi tragedy from its current status to the Olympics, legal battles, and volcanoes. He explains that the Cesium 134 found from Vancouver, BC down to Portland, OR is a signature of residue radiation from the original explosions in March 2011. While it is safe to swim on the west coast or run along the shore,  Arnie explains why he has chosen not to eat any fish from the Pacific at this time. The status of nuclear reactors, the industry, and nuclear waste storage in the United States is the focus of the second half of the interview.
