Chernobyl 25 Years Later: Lessons Learned? Networking Reception & Discussion
Twenty five years after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, what do we know about the real environmental, health, and economic impact(s)? With the nuclear energy industry again on the rise globally as an "alternative" to fossil fuel energy, what lessons have we learned from the Chernobyl disaster and how have these lessons affected nuclear energy policy and practice today? Finally, is nuclear energy today a safe alternative energy supply?
The World Affairs Council and Hanford Challenge present Alexey Yablokov, who will address the real consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe including poor public health, elevated mortality rates, and new and unusual illnesses. Mr. Yablokov will also discuss why the true impact of Chernobyl has been silenced and why the World Health Organization has not spoken out.
