Six Months After "3/11": Experts To Discuss Where Nuclear Power Stands After Fukushima Disaster

In the Wake of Recent Reactor-Rattling Earthquake and Hurricane Irene, Leading U.S. Experts to Outline Implications for Industry, Regulatory Process, Safety and Public Health

WASHINGTON, Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Sunday marks two important anniversaries – but the one that will get less attention is "3/11" – the six-month anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear reactor crisis.  In anticipation of that anniversary, three leading U.S. experts will hold a phone-based briefing to discuss where things stand now and where they are going for nuclear reactors.

The news event will be held at 11 a.m. EDT/ 1500 GMT Thursday ( September 8, 2011).

Representing a broad range of regulatory, health and engineering expertise, the experts will examine what is now known about the Fukushima disaster, what the implications are for U.S. reactors oversight and design, and what the post-Fukushima implications are since the recent earthquake and Hurricane Irene events in the U.S.

News event speakers will be:

  • Peter Bradford, former member of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, former chair of the New York and Maine utility regulatory commissions, and currently adjunct professor at Vermont Law School on "Nuclear Power and Public Policy";
  • Ed Lyman, senior scientist, Global Security Program, Union of Concerned Scientists; and
  • Dr. Andy Kanter, national board president elect (2012), Physicians for Social Responsibility, and director of Medical Informatics / Health Info Services, Millennium Villages Project, Earth Institute, Columbia University.

TO PARTICIPATE: You can join this live, phone-based news conference (with full, two-way Q&A) at 11 a.m. EDT/ 1500 GMT on September 8, 2011 by dialing 1 (800) 860-2442 in the U.S., 080-823-89064 in the United Kingdom or +1-412-858-4600 for callers outside the U.S./ United Kingdom. Ask for the "Fukushima 6-month anniversary" telenews event.

CAN'T PARTICIPATE?:  A streaming audio replay of the news event will be available on the Web at http://www.nuclearbailout.org as of 3 p.m. EDT/ 1900 GMT on September 8, 2011.
