When Nuclear Plants Close: Challenges for U.S. Reactor Decommissioning-Panel 1


What happens when a Nuclear Power Plant is SHUT DOWN???

Does it simply VANISH???

The New York Society For Ethical Culture, the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Jack and Belle Alpern Foundation bring together multiple people and discipines to probe that very much sought after DECOMMISSIONING event.

By bringing together grassroots activists, regulators, scientists and advocacy lawyers in a Q & A setting at Manhattan’s New York Society for Ethical Culture’s space, they have caused the rather large unseen elephant in the room to finally make an appearance.

They have released 2 separate videos, one of each Panel, with the Q & A session to follow-up later.
