Celebrity Sighting near Oyster Creek (Wait, isn't he supposed to be in France?)

NA-YGN member April Schilpp alerted me to a “Clinic Symposium on Campaign to Close Oyster Creek Nuclear Power Plant” at Rutgers University next Friday, December 8. And it will be hosted by actor Alec Baldwin—maybe he came back after discovering that nearly 80% of France’s electricity is generated by nuclear power plants?

Anyway, the agenda is:

1)Richard Webster, Attorney, Rutgers Environmental Law Clinic and Eastern Environmental Law Center: Safety issues

2) Bob Alvarez, Senior Policy Advisor to the U.S. Secretary of Energy 1993-1999: Spent fuel dangers and general vulnerability

3) Julia Huff: Attorney, Rutgers Environmental Law Clinic and Executive Director, Eastern Environmental Law Center: Environmental issues associated with Oyster Creek operations: marine impacts

4) Joe Mangano, Executive Director, Radiation and Public Health Project: Health issues

5) Paul Gunter, Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) – Exelon’s pattern of deception and incompetence

6) Questions – timing variable

7) Alec Baldwin, What You Can Do

Local NA-YGN members are planning to attend and give out material telling the other side of the story. If you want to support the effort, send an email to supportOysterCreek-at-hotmail.com.

I’ll post more information as I receive it!

Oh, Lisa, give our friends at Oyster Creek some insights into the modes of operation of the members of the board. Here are some insights into Managano's claims, writings, and tactics:

and the winner of them all - read what Mangano has to say about Oyster Creek.

I suppose you really ought to review the details of the study... but there's no copy of the study linked to the press release?

Maybe this is the study, or part of it, in support of comment to the NRC regarding Turkey Point.

Check to ensure the counties within 30 miles of a nuclear station really are what is assumed. Check to make sure counties within the 30 mile radius aren't omitted when they dilute the negative conclusions of the report.

Here is the CDC website where mortality rates can be compared for yourself, by county:

Why should it be done by county at all? That's not a representative sample.
