Event Type: Adult|
Age Group(s): Adults
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 3:30 PM
The Green New Deal proposes phasing out nuclear power in the U.S. over a limited period of time. Can this time frame be met given the fact that each nuclear power plant produces 20 to 25 tons of nuclear waste per year and there is currently no U.S. location legally authorized for long term storage of these wastes?Library: Northwest Regional Library location
NOTE: Program content will not be focused on the Green New Deal other than the portion of that document that addresses the phasing out of nuclear power. Neither nuclear waste nor the Green New Deal will be discussed from a political perspective.
Ms. Swartz retired after 20 years as an independent contractor and waste policy analyst addressing the "science in the context of community" side of the dialogue. Her work was focused on assisting nuclear engineers and scientists in "translating" their nuclear waste management work into concepts and formats that might be understandable to the average citizen and on designing ways to involve U.S. citizens in determining acceptable nuclear waste management solutions through community discussion and informed dialogue.
