Public Hearing on New Nuclear Reactors in Levy County, Florida

January 12, 2012
Crystal River, Florida

Dr. Lynn Ringenberg, PSR Tampa Bay-Florida President, will be speaking on behalf of PSR at the January 12th public hearing regarding two proposed nuclear reactors in Levy County.  Dr. Ringenberg will emphasize the health issues related to radiation exposure. This is such an important issue for the health of our state.  One only has to look at the Fukushima disaster to see just how devastating a nuclear power plant can be. This is a time to look forward to a clean sustainable energy future, not backwards.
 
There is strength in numbers and we hope you will consider attending.  If you cannot attend there is the opportunity to submit written comments.  See the attached notice for more details.
 
IF YOU COME TO SPEAK, please see below and PREREGISTER BY JANUARY 5th

Anyone who pre-registers may speak -- but NOTE: No one is allowed to represent the intervening organizations; if you are a member of one of the three groups leading this challenge, don't worry about that -- but do not mention it -- and only speak for yourself, or for another organization that has authorized you to do so -- that is NOT an intervening group. These groups have another arena in which to be heard (the hearing) and so we will be present to LISTEN, but not to speak.
