Presentation by Dr. Jim Harding
When: Friday, Feb 29th at 7pm
Where: Stanley Milner Public Library (Downtown), Edmonton Room
Address:7 Sir Winston Churchill Square, Edmonton
Author Dr. Jim Harding reveals the impact of uranium mining and nuclear power on everything from public health, tar sands extraction, to nuclear weapons. Addressing aboriginal rights, the environment, the epidemic of cancer, and international nuclear industry, he presents an alternative vision linking energy, health, and sovereignty to a sustainable and peaceful future.
Dr.Harding's new book, Canada's Deadly Secret, chronicles the struggle over Saskatchewan's uranium mining, the front end of the global nuclear system. It demonstrates the negative impacts on Aboriginal rights and environmental health, and the effect of free trade, in tracing Saskatchewan's pivotal role in nuclear proliferation with its spread of contamination and cancer. Jim Harding shows that nuclear energy cannot address global warming; nor is there a "peaceful atom."
The book goes inside biased public inquiries, exposing PR campaigns of half-truths and untruths, and indicts the penetration of nuclear propaganda into our schools. Canada's Deadly Secret also highlights successes in holding back nuclear expansion. It presents an alternative, ecological vision for a sustainable future that not only takes up the invitation coming from renewable energies, but also links energy, environment, health, peace and sovereignty.
Jim Harding is a retired professor of environmental and justice studies. He is a founding member of the Regina Group for a Non-Nuclear Society and International Uranium Congress, and was director of research for Prairie Justice Research at the University of Regina where he headed up the Uranium Inquiries Project. Jim also acted as Prairie Correspondent for Nuclear Free Press and consultant for the National Film Board award-winning film Uranium.
