Screening of “Chernobyl to Fukushima” with talks by Dr. Alexander Belyakov, Ryerson University & Chernobyl Foundation, and Shawn-Patrick Stensil, Energy and Climate Campaigner at Greenpeace. Dr. Alexander Belyakov presents his report “Chernobyl Wasn’t That Bad”: Truth and Lies About Chernobyl You Wish You Knew”.


We often lament the plight of the “children of Chernobyl” and try to alleviate the suffering in Ukraine, without knowing too much about what actually happened, and without connecting the disasters to a general understanding of the use of nuclear energy worldwide. To help us understand and examine the role of our government in protecting us, securing a safe and healthy future, and making the right decisions regarding energy, two speakers will share their knowledge and experience of these topics. We hope that this will help us, as a community, be better informed, and ultimately, make better decisions regarding our future. We hope to see you there!
