IS NUCLEAR POWER THE SOLUTION TO
CLIMATE CHANGE & FUTURE ENERGY DEMAND?
FORMER GREENPEACE ACTIVIST TURNED NUCLEAR INDUSTRY FRONTMAN TO DEBATE
LEADING EXPERTS AGAINST A NEW NUCLEAR RENAISSANCE
WHY: Burlington, VT - After decades of decline and near-oblivion, the
question of a nuclear power ?renaissance? is being brought to the fore as
a miracle answer to combat climate change and charge up a new energy
regime free from foreign dependence. Few images elicit more impassioned
responses than that of a nuclear reactor ? some of horror and others of
hope. This pressing debate, now raging in every media medium and outlet,
has been universally one-sided. With questions as crucial to the planet
as climate change and energy, we cannot afford to let statements go
unchallenged. The sharply differing views on the proposed ?nuclear
renaissance? promises to provide an action-filled exchange of the
contentious issues at hand at the annual conference of the Society of
Environmental Journalists, a ?nonpartisan, non-advocacy membership
organization of professional journalists and academics."

GRACE WEBCAST of a panel discussion from
the SEJ Conference
?Cradle to Grave: New Nukes and Old
The promise of greenhouse gas-free electricity has some people predicting
a nuclear power Renaissance. The Bush administration is pledging billions
of dollars in incentives to fast-track the construction of new nuclear
reactors and the reprocessing of waste, yet nuclear terrorism and
proliferation of nuclear weapons abetted by nuclear power programs remain
chilling threats. These thorny issues have further polarized the debate:
some former nuclear opponents support nuclear as the world's best energy
solution, while some former regulators have doubts about a revival, and
other environmental groups continue to warn of new nuclear risks.
The GRACE Energy Initiative will release a new report in advance of
the debate called
?FALSE PROMISES: DEBUNKING NUCLEAR INDUSTRY PROPAGANDA.?
