ATOMIC HOPE Film Screening April 21, 2024 at 4pm at Mystic Luxury Cinema

Upcoming screening event:

New London County is home to Millstone Nuclear Power Station. According to a Yale School of Management Case Study "The Future of Nuclear in Connecticut", Connecticut has a complicated history with nuclear energy. Millstone power plant in Waterford is a major supplier of low-carbon electricity in both Connecticut and New England. But the facility has also generated strong opposition since it opened in 1970 from citizen and environmental groups concerned about its environmental, security, and public health risks.

As the Governor's Council on Climate Change considers how to reduce statewide emissions, it must decide the role nuclear will play in the state's transition to a low-carbon economy.

Whether you are for or against nuclear energy and want to see both sides of the issue, please join us for the Connecticut premiere of a documentary release called ATOMIC HOPE: Inside the Pro-nuclear Movement. It follows over a ten-year period environmental activists and scientists who strongly believe nuclear power is the key to solving both our energy and climate crisis.
