This year’s Public Interest Environmental Law Conference (PIELC) will be held remotely from March 3-6, 2022. The conference will be an event full of energy, innovation, and inspiration for those involved in the environmental movement.
One of the panels, titled Clean Energy: There Is No Nuclear Option, will present a brief history of nuclear energy in the Pacific NW, the current state of the industry, and its current push for development and increased subsidization of small modular nuclear reactors. Panelists will discuss the environmental injustice, safety and economic risks, and irresponsible hype associated with this energy source.
