Nuclear Power: A Threat to Real Climate Action in Maryland @ Silver Spring, MD - Silver Spring Civic Center, Fenton Room
Dec 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Join Chesapeake PSR for an informative evening about the threat nuclear energy poses to real climate action in Maryland!

Governor Hogan and some members of the General Assembly are pushing to subsidize nuclear energy as a renewable source of power. Subsidizing nuclear energy would give your ratepayer money directly to profiteering Exelon, the parent company of BGE and PEPCO.

Every dollar we spend propping up aging reactors is a dollar we can’t spend on the inevitable transition away from nuclear power and fossil fuels to a clean, safe, affordable energy economy. The event will feature a presentation about the current political landscape related to nuclear energy, as well as an expert panel highlighting the danger that nuclear energy poses to real climate action followed by a Q&A session.

Hope to see you there! Please contact Rianna Eckel, Senior Maryland Organizer with Food & Water Watch, with any questions: reckel@fwwatch.org, 410-394-7652.

Co-sponsored by Chesapeake PSR.
