Webinar with co-authors of “Fukushima: The Story of a Nuclear Disaster”

Rachel Grillo | April 29, 2014 | Webinars

Last month marked the third anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in March 2011 and triggered one of the largest nuclear disasters in history. Many continue to ask, “Could this happen here in the U.S.?” and are the “Lessons Learned” from Japan’s ongoing nuclear accident being properly analyzed and implemented?

Find out by joining us on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 12 pm ET for an informative SACE-hosted webinar with co-authors of the new book from the Union of Concerned Scientists, Fukushima: The Story of a Nuclear Disaster. Speakers will include nuclear experts Dave Lochbaum and Dr. Ed Lyman with the Union of Concerned Scientists and Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Susan Q. Stranahan.

The page-turning book draws on firsthand accounts, as well as detailed technical records and media coverage, to recreate the events preceding, during, and after the meltdowns of three of Fukushima’s nuclear reactors.

The webinar will include a discussion of the implications of the disaster on U.S. nuclear power production, such as the new AP1000 reactors under construction at SCE&G’s V.C. Summer in South Carolina, Southern Company’s Plant Vogtle in Georgia and the completion of TVA’s Watts Bar 2 ice condenser reactor in Tennessee.
