Energy Education Project Hosts Gwyneth Cravens in Vermont Thursday

The Energy Education Project: Gwyneth Cravens Visit to Vermont This Thursday

On Thursday, January 20, the Ethan Allen Institute Energy Education Project will host Gwyneth Cravens, author of Power to Save the World. She will appear in Vermont, and Vermont needs to hear her reasoned message about nuclear power at this crucial time. Her thoughtful approach and clarity of expression is an important antidote to the overblown energy rhetoric of recent months.

Cravens will appear at several events on Thursday, two of which are free and open to the public. Ethan Allen Institute Energy Education Project is proud to have arranged this visit.

The first event is a State House Round table. At 12:15 p.m., Cravens will speak at the Montpelier Statehouse. We will provide a complimentary copy of her book, Power to Save the World, to Vermont legislators. The Round Table event is open to the public, and we hope to see many non-legislators (as well as legislators) in attendance. The announcement for this event is at the right, including the coupon which legislators have received.

At 7 p.m., Cravens will speak in Burlington, at the Ethan Allen Institute Sheraton Economics series at the Sheraton Burlington Emerald Ballroom. This Economics Series talk is free and open to the public. At this event, her book will be available for sale and book-signing. The announcement for this event is at the top of this blog post.

Cravens will also appear at a few smaller venues, such as the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics at University of Vermont. Due to space restrictions, these talks are not open to the public.

As usual, double-click the graphics to enlarge them.

If you want to know more about Cravens approach, you can follow the links below to hear Cravens on a recent Vermont talk radio show: the Mark Johnson Show.

I have also appeared on several radio shows to discuss her upcoming visit.

Cravens' talks in Burlington and Montpelier will give you an opportunity to ask questions of a knowledgeable pro-nuclear speaker. Your questions are probably the same questions Cravens considered when she started out. She was very skeptical of nuclear energy. She changed her mind through years of study, travel, and interviews with scientists. Cravens combines knowledge with clarity in a very approachable way. This is an excellent opportunity to learn why nuclear power is indeed, Power to Save the World.

I hope that many of you will be able to attend.

NOTE: Most of this blog post is a copy of an email I sent to Energy Education Project supporters. Just for fun, I include a picture of myself at a radio show yesterday morning.
