Sure their are plenty of them on various payrolls offering paid for opinions . Arnie is down to earth and seems to have a unequivocal interest in the truth no matter who je upsets.

There are a few more.
This is from the Huffington post.

Of greatest concern at Los Alamos is a part of that facility called Technical Area 55 (TA-55), which includes Plutonium Facility 4 (PF-4). Peter Stockton, a senior investigator with the Project on Government Oversight, said a fire at PF-44 would be "a #ing disaster" that could result in large and lethal releases of radiation. He noted, too, that the Los Alamos facility has had problems with its internal fire suppression systems in the past

From what Arnie said among many things in this interview, one point that makes me really angry is that in 1995 officials in America allowed the Nuclear parent companies to spin off each and every reactor into its own LLC company. That means if, say for example Indian Point reactor #2 went into a situation where it leaked large amounts of highly radioactive contamination (like Fukushima), it would be declared bankrupt, and as in the design of an LLC, that reactor would be its only asset, it would not have to sell off ANYTHING, the huge catastrophic bill would be born by us taxpayers. They created a fail-check system where all money made from each reactor flows upward to the parent company, but nothing flows back down to the reactor (LLC company). In Japan, at least TEPCO is a very huge company with lots of assets, and they have at least skin in the game where they have to sell off as many assets as necessary to foot the bill of the disaster. Here in America, the power companies have NO skin in the game, if a reactor goes boom, oh well, the taxpayers will be left figuring out how to pay for it.

The LLC concept was tested in the Katrina disaster. Arnie revealed how Entergy had set up Entergy LLC in New Orleans so that when Katrina hit, Entergy LLC was declared bankrupt and Federal funds were secured to cover the damages and rebuilding of the power grid. The top executives gave themselves BONUSES because they were able to secure Federal funds instead of using their own money to rebuild their own power grid..
Corporate welfare at its finest

Another point he brought up is how a major area of concern to him in Calhoun and Cooper is the underground piping and electrical wiring running from the Emergency Intake service pumps to the buildings. With all the flooding and boggy mud, and settling of the area, what happens when the piping or electrical lines are damaged or shorted and the emergency pumps can't get cooling water to the diesel generators and plant. He points out how everyone is focusing on the wrong areas of concern. Also talks about how the foundation of the plant will settle after the floods are long gone, and worries about what the structural and seismic evaluation of the condition of the plant will be.
