The Atomic States of America

When: Thu., April 17, 7-8:30 p.m. 2014

The Sierra Club will be screening this stirring 2012 documentary based on Kelly McMasters’s memoir about growing up in a nuclear-reactor community. Acutely topical given the recent Fukushima disaster in Japan, the film encapsulates both the history of this allegedly clean source of energy and our collective denial of a potentially looming disaster at our aging sites. Yet despite the known risks of nuclear power, our country’s leaders are attempting to invoke a nuclear renaissance. Glenn Carroll from Nuclear Watch South will introduce the film and provide information about the expansion of nuclear plant Vogtle happening upstream from Savannah.
