Nuclear energy advocate, Greenpeace co-founder to speak at University Place April 22

Posted April 18, 2008

Patrick Moore, Ph.D., nuclear energy advocate and co-founder of the international environmental group Greenpeace, is scheduled to speak about energy and environmental issues Tuesday, April 22, at 7 p.m. in the multipurpose room in the Idaho State University Bennion Student Union Building at University Place, 1784 Science Center Drive in Idaho Falls.

Cost is $5 at the door. Advance purchase is recommended by calling 313-4166 or 526-8587. Some free tickets will be available at the information desk for students of Idaho State University and University of Idaho with valid student ID.

Moore's talk is being sponsored by the nonprofit group Partnership for Science and Technology (PST), in association with the Idaho Section of the American Nuclear Society (IANS). Moore will discuss what he says are new ways of thinking about the world's energy and environmental challenges. He seeks to persuade fellow environmentalists that nuclear technologies – long shunned by the mainstream environmental movement – are less harmful to the environment than other current approaches.
