Eye On Boise

And on the other hand...

Just as Gov. Butch Otter has been speaking out this week in favor of nuclear power, comes the announcement that Dr. Helen Caldicott, co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility and author of “Nuclear Power is Not the Answer,” is coming to speak in Boise. It’s just coincidence – Caldicott, an internationally renowned pediatrican and activist from Australia, is giving a free lecture at Boise State University on Oct. 23rd sponsored by the BSU sociology department. In her book, Caldicott examines the costs and risks of nuclear power, and suggests that alternative energy sources such as wind power and simple lifestyle changes like hanging clothes to dry and turning down thermostats offer a better solution to the world’s energy woes. Her lecture is set for 7 p.m. in the BSU Special Events Center.
