The Chernobyl Disaster…What Have We Learned?

Alexey Yaroshevsky, RT America joins Thom. It's now been thirty years since the worst nuclear disaster in history. On April 26, 1986 - the reactor of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the city of Pripyat, Ukraine exploded - sending a massive cloud of radioactive material into the atmosphere. Radiation continued to flowed out of the destroyed plant for 10 straight days - spreading toxic materials for over 77,000 square miles. 31 people died in the ensuing cleanup - and many thousands of other deaths have been connected to the disaster - as have countless cases of cancer. To this day - the area around the Chernobyl plan is surrounded by a 19 square mile exclusion zone - and it will take 20,000 years before it's safe again for humans to live there. What happened in Chernobyl remains a potent warning about the dangers of atomic power - that the worst really can happen. So - thirty years on - how much closer are we to grappling with that reality?

How Can the GOP Run American Government If They Hate It?

The coal country state of West Virginia is in the middle of a special legislative session to deal with a $270 million budget shortfall, and it's setting the stage for Republicans to completely gut the state's government.

It's the same playbook we've seen the right-wing carry out in Wisconsin, in Kansas, in Michigan, and in Ohio.
