Hudson Riverkeeper Paul Gallay will moderate an important discussion with a distinguished panel about the lessons for Indian Point we should learn from the 2011 meltdown of Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Speakers include Naoto Kan, the former Japanese Prime Minister; Gregory Jaczko, former Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (Chairman during the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear disaster); Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer and analyst for Fairewinds Associates; and Peter Bradford, former Commissioner of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (Commissioner during the Three Mile Island nuclear disaster).

Come and hear a candid and unrestricted dialogue about why we should be concerned about the Indian Point nuclear power plant.

Earlier this year on June 4, 2013, Jaczko, Bradford and Gundersen were joined by Japan’s former Prime Minister, Naoto Kan, where they spoke at the San Diego County Administrative Center about their concerns regarding the safety of the San Onofre nuclear power plant. Three days after the panel, the plant was closed permanently.
