Same Design, Same Danger: Should Pilgrim Nuclear Plant Close?

January 25, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In the face of catastrophic climate change, some have suggested that nuclear power is a carbon-free solution.  Is nuclear power a viable carbon-free option?  What are the risks nuclear power and of the existing Pilgrim plant?   Come join this important forum.

Thirty-five miles away from Jamaica Plain sits Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth, the only operating nuclear power plant in Massachusetts, built in 1972.  Operated by the Louisiana-based Energy Corporation, the Pilgrim plant is the same design (General Electric Mark 1) as the power plants that melted down in Fukushima, Japan.  Should this plant continue to operate?

Join local activists and experts for this important conversation.
