FirstEnergy's Davis-Besse nuclear power plant has reached a milestone. Last week it surpassed an in-house record for days spent idle. Davis-Besse been shut down for 19 months, since corrosion damage was discovered in a cap on the plant's reactor lid. The company is planning to restart the plant, which generates a significant portion of FirstEnergy's total power output. But one of the country's best known critics of corporate culture thinks the restart is a bad idea. Ralph Nader will visit Bowling Green State University on Wednesday, September 10th, to call for a permanent shutdown at Davis Besse. He spoke to ideastream's April Baer about his trip.
