August is the national “Nuclear Free Future Month,” and this year is the 66th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In the San Francisco Bay a broad coalition of groups organized two events known as From Hiroshima to Fukushima to Livermore: Confronting the Two-Headed Dragon of Nuclear Weapons and Nuclear Power. These were held at the Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Weapons Laboratory, one of the two principle U.S. facilities engaged in nuclear weapons research and development.

Dr. Arjun Makhijani, President of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, is the principal author of the first study ever done on energy conservation potential in the U.S. economy. He is co-author Carbon-Free and Nuclear-Free: A Roadmap for U.S. Energy Policy, the first analysis of a transition to a U.S. economy based completely on renewable energy, without any use of fossil fuels or nuclear power. This book can be downloaded for free from Institute for Energy and Environmental Research - ieer.org.
