Greenpeace co-founder, Dr. Patrick Moore, urges acceptance for nuclear power as a sound and safe choice for energy consumers

    TORONTO, Sept. 17 /CNW/ -


    Who:      Dr. Patrick Moore, environmentalist, Greenpeace co-founder and
              now Chairman and Chief Scientist of the environmental
              consulting firm Greenspirit Strategies Ltd. based in Vancouver.

    What:     Dr. Moore will host a lively and engaging debate arguing that,
              much of the environmental movement, including Greenpeace, has
              lost its way when it comes to nuclear power, caught up in
              politically correct ideology and stooping to sensationalism to
              garner support. Dr. Moore says that today's scientific evidence
              supports nuclear power as an environmentally sound and safe
              choice for energy consumers around the globe. And, nuclear
              energy is the only non-greenhouse-gas-emitting power source
              that can effectively replace fossil fuels and satisfy global
              energy demand.

    When:     Monday, September 17, 2007
              12:00 p.m.

    Where:    The Canadian Club of Toronto
              Fairmont Royal York Hotel - Main Mezzanine floor, Imperial Room
              100 Front St. W., Toronto

    Why:      Ontario and the world are looking at nuclear technology to play
              a key role in providing future base load electrical supply, in
              reducing GGC emissions and improving air quality. In Ontario,
              CANDU nuclear energy is the greatest single contributor to
              carbon reduction relative to all other energy producing
              technologies. If Ontario is serious about reducing CO2
              emissions while meeting its increasing energy needs, it must
              continue to support clean, safe and reliable nuclear power
              combined with hydro, wind and geothermal energy sources.
