Actor Alec Baldwin to Moderate Symposium on Health & Safety Issues at Oyster Creek Nuclear Power Plant

November 29, 2006 – 

Actor Alec Baldwin will moderate a December 8 symposium hosted by the Environmental Law Clinic at Rutgers School of Law–Newark on the safety, health, and environmental threats posed by the Oyster Creek Nuclear Power Plant, located in Lacey Township. Exelon, owner and operator of the facility, has applied to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for a 20-year extension of its operating license. The Rutgers clinic represents the Stop Relicensing of Oyster Creek Coalition in legal action opposing the relicensing.

“Oyster Creek Nuclear Power Plant: The Truth Revealed: A Symposium and Call to Action” will feature experts on Oyster Creek and on nuclear power who will give presentations on problems with the plant in five areas: safety, terrorism, environment, health, and Exelon’s operation of the facility. The symposium will conclude with a discussion moderated by Alec Baldwin on actions citizens can take to prevent the relicensing of Oyster Creek.
