The 'Nuclear Renaissance' and Fukushima As the danger of radiation exposure grows in Japan, President Obama has called for a safety review of existing nuclear plants. But he still plans new ones as part of America's "green energy" future. Others say nuclear power is not safe enough and that it's too expensive.

A 'Go Slow' for US Nuclear Energy? Global warming was the best news for the nuclear power industry since Three Mile Island . New reactors were planned in the US for the first time in decades. But the growing radiation threat from Japan's disaster has raised disturbing questions about both safety and economics. President Obama has called for a safety review of existing nuclear plants, but he still plans new ones as part of America's "green energy" future. More frightened Americans are saying, "Not in my back yard," and investors are not interested unless public money is promised to pay for possible accidents. Is nuclear viable to help slow the pace of climate change? Can alternatives expand fast enough to replace it? How safe are the plants we have now?
Trump's intelligence disclosures cause chaos On the eve of departure for his first trip overseas, President Trump is embroiled in another controversy. It's about reports that he shared highly classified information with two high-ranking Russians.
Trump's Russia ties intensify with Comey firing Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe contradicted the Trump White House today, insisting the Bureau had not lost faith in former Director James Comey. He promised to notify the committee of any interference into investigation of the Trump campaign's contacts with Vladimir Putin's Russia. What do we know about those contacts… and how they relate to Trump's business interests and those of his family?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
