Add to Calendar 08-10-2013 08-10-2013 15 The Fukushima Nuclear Accident: Ongoing Lessons for Boston & New York Concerned Citizens Forum Concerned citizens of New York are holding a panel to discuss the risks of nuclear catastrophe at Indian Point, a three-unit nuclear power station located in Buchanan, New York, 25 miles outside New York City. Potential risk of a nuclear crisis at Indian Point would pose a danger to millions in the New York area. The technology at the plant is 40 years old, and the containment domes were not designed to hold 100 tons of melting uranium in event of an accident and meltdown. U.S. citizens are now questioning the safety of the Indian Point and Pilgrim nuclear power plants. In the event of a catastrophe like Fukushima, these plants would threaten millions. A nuclear disaster at Indian Point would threaten the entire population of New York City and the outlying metropolitan area. A crisis at Pilgrim poses similar danger to millions in and surrounding Boston. The panel will specifically address concerns regarding Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant now operating with an expired license in Buchanan, New York and Pilgrim Nuclear Generating Station in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The seminars will be held in New York City on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and in Boston on Wednesday, Oct. 9. More speakers will be announced. Panel speakers include: - former Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Dr. Gregory Jaczko - former NRC Commissioner, Peter Bradford - nuclear engineer, Arnie Gundersen - More will be announced closer to the event date The panel will be held on Tuesday, October 8th from 9am to 11am at 92nd Street Y, 1395 LexingtonNew York, NY 10128.
