March 11, 2017 marks the sixth anniversary of the Great Earthquake and the disaster at Fukushima. We are fortunate and honored to host Dr. Gordon Edwards for our Fukushima program this year on March 10, 7 pm at the Goddard Riverside Community Center in NYC, 593 Columbus Avenue. He will also be presenting on March 11, 1:30 pm at the Peekskill Presbyterian Church, 705 South Street.
Dr. Edwards is renowned for his knowledge on the nuclear fuel cycle. He will be talking with us about Rolling Stewardship – how to best store high level radioactive waste. This topic is particularly timely since the closing of Indian Point in four years moves us quickly towards decommissioning and what to do with the tons of high level waste stored there. There is more high level radioactive waste stored at Indian Point than there was in all the spent fuel pools at Fukushima. Please mark your calendar for this important event and enjoy the interview of Dr. Edwards on the “Nuclear Hotseat.”
