52] – On Sun., Feb. 6 at 10:30 AM, the Baltimore Ethical Society, 306 W. Franklin St., Suite 102, Baltimore 21201, is hosting a discussion on “Nuclear Power: Renaissance or Relapse?” delivered by Paul Gunter, Beyond Nuclear. “The nuclear power industry and its champions are proposing a massive technological revival of new reactor construction of as many as 100 new reactors in the United States in the next 30 years, including a colossal French-owned and -designed reactor on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Lusby, Maryland now in the federal license application process.


After being described by Forbes in 1985 as "the largest managerial disaster in business history" and the collapse of new reactor construction in the United States essentially in 1979, what has changed and what has stayed the same for the prospect of a nuclear renaissance? What are the reasonable, feasible and commercially viable alternatives less harmful to the environment that can address global climate change and provide energy security? Call 410-581-2322 or visit
