Nuclear Power to Save the Climate?
Now that Pilgrim Power Station in Plymouth is closed, there is serious concern over the ongoing and long term storage of nuclear waste in dry casks. However, these dangers are sometimes neutralized by the belief that nuclear power helps reduce greenhouse gases and is therefore deserving of support from climate activists. Diane Turco and her team at Cape Downwinders feel an urgency to address these two concerns together. They’ll be sharing their research and explain why nuclear power surely won’t save the climate. Meeting platform will open at 9:30 for informal socializing. Program will begin promptly at 10:00.
