INVITING THE EAST BOSTON COMMUNITY
I’m excited to share with you an upcoming dialogue that my friends and I are promoting— “Go big on nuclear power in Massachusetts,” for CivilDialogues.org and MassDialogues. The dialogue in the form of a virtual event will take place on Wednesday, October 20 at 2 p.m. ET.
Twenty percent of our power nationally comes from nuclear power, a technology that has existed since the 1950s, produces no carbon dioxide and has killed far fewer people than fossil fuels.
Is it time for at least one state, like Massachusetts, to go big in supporting nuclear power to make a difference in climate change?
I’m neither for or against the above proposition. I’m trying to promote a forum where people can talk across the aisle. We hope it will lead many more people to engage in bridging the divide.
Civil Dialogues is an online agora founded by Professor Amitai Etzioni. Here Professor Etzioni speaks about CivilDialogues, which he founded several years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FK_eLzd2H8&ab_channel=AmitaiEtzioni,
You will learn it’s a place people meet to deliberate and to form a consensus on urgent matters. No aliases, no fakes; only people who are willing to show their true face. Identities are verified.
Civil Dialogues is a place to allow the kind of continued, extended deliberations that democracy requires. A place to form resolutions and vote on them. A site to make a record once consensus has been reached. A platform on which online communities are formed that carry over offline.
PLEASE NOTE, the chat and Q&A function will be disabled for this debate. To interact with the debaters and share your questions or ideas, please visit the Go Big on Nuclear Power in Massachusetts community at CivilDialogues.org, found here: https://civildialogues.org/t/go-big-on-nuclear-power-in-massachusetts/440
Sign up for the event here.
Again please mark the date. October 20th at 2:00pmET, with speakers, Alex Gilbert, Project Manager at the Nuclear Innovation Alliance, Paul Hibbard, Principal at Analysis Group’s Boston office, and moderator, Natasha Perez, PMP, Chief of Staff and Project Manager at the Massachusetts State Senate. You can register to attend HERE—we hope you’ll join!
