Apr. 5 – Dr. Helen Caldicott

At this time of international tension, climate change and war, Helen is educating people about the dangers of global warming and nuclear power. Despite the nuclear industry’s propaganda to the contrary, nuclear power is NOT the answer to global warming. And, needless to say, we must reinstate nuclear treaties, stop the proliferation of deadly nuclear weapons and work for world peace. Helen is also committed to helping us propel the progressive agenda, to help steer the Obama administration in our direction.
