U.S. and Canadian governments seem bent on a nuclear (and big coal) buildup at the same time that many Great Lakes residents, including First Nation and Anishinaabe Peoples, are seeking sustainable, decentralized energy for our future ? to protect both the People- and the Waters, upon which our whole Bioregion depends. We seek a smaller human footprint on the face of the Earth, and see the urgent need to address global warming. What is the legacy we wish to leave our grandchildren? Join us for a look at the choices we have before us, and what we can do about it.
