Sierra Club NYC Group Sustainability Series, CFS: Unseen and Everywhere - RADIATION: Fracking to Chernobyl, Fukushima, Indian Point
Radiation is naturally occurring and “person-made,” from low level to deadly high. There are many types and levels, but NO SAFE AMOUNT. We will look at radiation and health. You will learn how people are being exposed to radiation not only from nuclear power but also from the use of frack water as a deicer on roads.

This webinar will also touch upon the global safety and security issues associated with radiation. Could Chernobyl become “reactivated?” Will Japan dump tons of radiated water from the Fukushima accident into the Pacific Ocean? Is the decommissioning of Indian Point safe? How and where is nuclear waste being stored? These and other questions will be addressed by our speakers.

SPEAKERS:
BARBARA ARRINDELL - Director of Damascus Citizens Sustainability (DCS). With her background in bioengineering and 2nd role as DCS’s Chief Science Officer, she led DCS in a wakeup call to the East Coast on fracking dangers, later made DCS a major influence in banning fracking in NYS, 2021 in the Delaware River Basin. In “Unseen and Everywhere: Radiation,” Arrindell will awaken us to the hazards of radioactive frack waste.
