Nuclear energy, long discredited as a dangerous and costly source of power, is now being ressurected

Thirty years ago this country's nuclear program came to a halt after the disasterous accident and meltdown at the Three Mile Island nuclear facility in Pennsylvania. Since then we are still debating how to safely store in perpetuity countless tons of high level radioactive waste that is the legacy of this program that once promised "energy too cheap to meter," but resulted in massive cost-overuns and environmental hazards. So why has the nuclear option returned to the table as we look for alternatives to carbon emitting climate changing fossil fuels? What forgotten lessons of the 1970s do we need to remember?

Nena Baker - The Body Toxic (lecture)
More than 4 decades ago Rachel Carson, in "Silent Spring," first warned that man-made chemicals were taking a deadly toll on birds and wildlife. Now we are recognizing that chemicals are effecting human
sexual development and reproduction and can cause central nervous system diseases, cancer, and liver disease. Everyone is carrying a dizzying array of chemical contaminants, the by-products of industry
that contribute to a host of health problems in ways just now being understood. These toxic substances, unknown to previous generations, accumulate in our fat, bones, blood, and organs as a consequence of womb-to-tomb exposure. Almost everything we encounter-from soap to soup cans and computers to clothing-contributes to a chemical load unique to each of us. Scientists refer to it as "chemical body burden." Chemical companies would rather consumers never knew about the potential dangers their products pose.

Nena Baker is a former staff writer for "The Arizona Republic," "The Oregonian," and United Press International. Her award-winning investigation of Nike's Indonesian factories led to numerous improvements for workers. She is the author of "The Body Toxic."

Let's Celebrate Amazing Cyclists!

Oregon is an amazing place to ride a bike not just because of the work of local and state governments.

Ordinary citizens like you and me have worked tirelessly over the years in their own unique ways to improve the cycling landscape.

Tune in to the KBOO Bike Show in March to learn more about these bike heroes and the upcoming Alice B. Toeclips awards ceremony that will honor their good work.  When faced with adversity, why did they keep fighting?  Where does the spirit come from?  Why do they love bikes?
