Nuclear Energy Brings Hope

TUESDAY – OCTOBER 25, 2022 – 7:30 PM (PDT)


1119 8th Ave (Entrance off Seneca St.)

Seattle, Washington 98101 (Live Streaming available, see tickets below)

Extreme weather events, such as heat waves, drought, along with forest fires, glaciers melting, sea level rise and acidification tell us it is time to stop using fossil fuels. Our experienced panel will discuss local to global energy issues in the face of climate change.
We’ll include, first, the state of energy in Washington. How much energy do we need for the future? Can we avoid blackouts? Second, we’ll address international energy supplies affected by the Ukraine war and world energy needs.
And finally, the panel will delve into changing attitudes towards nuclear energy and the rationale for more nuclear energy.
