The panelists are: the director of Three Mile Island Alert, Harrisburg, PA (tmia.com); and the staff of Beyond Nuclear, Takoma Park, MD (beyondnuclear.org). Included in the presentation will be little known facts such as routine emissions of cancer- causing isotopes onto the land and into the air and water (toxic discharges); unworkable evacuation plans; reactor leaks; personal protective items like radiation monitors and thyroid protection pills; impact on DNA; unprotected fuel rod storage; insufficient protection against terrorism; inability to help climate change; unsolved waste problems; prohibitive costs placed on taxpayers; extension of plants' licenses; de-bunking of the French nuclear industry; and the dangers of uranium mining. There will also be an exhibition concerning benign solutions to climate change including environmental organizations and companies exhibiting solar, geothermal, and wind technologies.
