E-M:/ Fwd: Carbon-Free, Nuclear-Free events in Michigan Oct 3-4

Enviro-Mich message from "m c" <ecadvocate@gmail.com>

Solar is now cheaper than nuclear.

And efficiency is cheaper than solar.

Hopefully a non-choir friend or captive school audience can be dragged
to one of these events.

If our compadre's say: "I've seen those nuclear protests before" this
will be a more pleasant and informative surprise.

And protests don't have free refreshments :)
