Scott Simon interviewed Stewart Brand, an icon of the US environmental movement on Weekend Edition for Saturday, February 20, 2010. He asked some probing questions and Brand gave some clear responses that are worth listening to and understanding. Brand is an excellent communicator and has a savvy media presence that is worth emulating. He does not delve into excessive detail, he is willing to laugh, and he even admits previous mistakes.
His description of the difference between what actually happened when the core of the Three Mile Island Unit 2 melted and the fantasy called “The China Syndrome” is a classic. I wonder where he learned that way of expressing it?
