The Greening of Nuclear Power: Fact or Fiction?

With the growing awareness of global warming and subsequent climate change, we realize we must move from fossil fuels to alternative energy sources. We hear increasing calls for the use of nuclear power as a substitute for fossil fuel with many calling for the development of nuclear energy as a way to stop or remedy our environmental crisis. Others find this to be a false path.
Speakers will be
Lloyd Marbet - long time opponent of nuclear power and executive director of the Oregon Conservancy Foundation
Duane Ray - Retired Physicist, concerned for our future and advocate for the development of nuclear energy.

Time/place: Feb 20, Saturday, start 10 AM at the First Unitarian Church, SW 12th and Salmon in Portland.
Door open at 9:30 AM.
Fee: No cost but donations gladly accepted.
