Eric Blevins will discuss the parallels between coal, nuclear and other forms of dirty energy, and their risks and consequences for local communities and the world. Through vivid images and plain language the complex tales of fuel extraction, nuclear and coal waste impoundment failures, and the health effects of radiation will come alive.

    Incredible information about how dangerous and ugly our energy truly is....this presentation should be a MUST for anybody who believes in a "green" culture.
