Moving from coal to clean nuclear power in Wyoming, the Natrium Reactor Project will be built, providing jobs, and reliable, safe, resilient clean energy. This is incredibly exciting as it will be the first next-gen (IV) reactor built in the United States. How it fits into the energy mix of today and tomorrow will be discussed by a lead on the project.
Join us for a Zoom talk and bring your questions.
We are fortunate to have Mark Werner, a mechanical engineer who develops and leads engineering teams that design advance reactor concepts focused on impacting future energy markets. Mark has worked in plant layout and design, reactor system and equipment design, reactor core design and fuel design in his past positions. Mark has worked for TerraPower for 10 years, and prior to that worked on Reactor designs for the US Navy’s nuclear fleet at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory in upstate NY. Mark has a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Union College and B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (Drexel University).
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Nick will give a brief talk about how nuclear energy works, why we need it to slow down climate change, and especially to answer all your questions about safety, waste, radiation, and more. This is your chance to ask the questions that make you step back and take a breath when you hear us say we need nuclear!
Nick Touran, PhD., is a nuclear engineer working on advanced nuclear reactors at TerraPower. He is helping develop technical solutions to world energy challenges. He is the founder of the nuclear public-education website whatisnuclear.com. He stays super busy with his hobbies of photography, electronics, motorcycles, ham radio, and hiking among others.
Seattle Friends of Fission is joining 40+ cities around the globe to recognize nuclear power’s clean, dependable, safe energy to fight climate change.

Did you know that Washington is at risk for rolling blackouts during extreme heat events like we saw in June and August?
Seattle is going to need more clean energy to electrify our transportation. Additionally, when drought reduces our hydropower, that gap will need to be filled. Nuclear’s clean energy can supply these needs.
Seattle Friends of Fission is proud to join Stand Up For Nuclear to tell people about the importance of nuclear power and dispel widespread myths about the technology. Our participants are environmentalists, scientists, activists, engineers, and doctors.

Join Seattle Friends of Fission for a lively discussion.
Governor Inslee has declared a drought emergency for Washington. • Will our clean hydropower be sufficient to generate enough electricity? • How much energy do we need for the future? • Why nuclear power should be part of the solution.
Join Dr. James Conca for a discussion on how we will generate enough energy to cool our houses, run our electric vehicles, power our buses and light rail, move our products, etc., and reduce carbon emissions. Lots of time at the end for your questions.
Dr. Conca is an earth and environmental scientist specializing in geologic disposal of nuclear waste, energy-related research, and work on issues in space for 34 years. He’s been a consultant for the DOE, EPA/State Environmental agencies and industry companies including nuclear, hydro, wind farms, large solar arrays, coal and gas. He currently writes an energy and environment weekly column for Forbes.com.
