Hot Spots in the Upper Great Lakes
Are the pristine lakes and rivers around us in danger of nuclear or chemical contamination? What’s the possibility of a nuclear or chemical disaster in northern Michigan? Learn about the possibility and what can be done about it at the Earth Week Expo on Saturday, April 12. Anabel and David Dwyer will discuss “Hot Spots in the Upper Great Lakes.”
Anabel Dwyer, a member of the Lawyers’ Committee on Nuclear Policy and David Dwyer, Professor Emeritus from Michigan State University and co-founder of the specialization in Peace and Justice Studies, will point out hot spots in the upper great lakes that threaten nuclear and chemical contamination. They will provide a map of problem areas, and identify who is responsible for them.
