Got any questions about our planet’s nuclear future, chances of Fukushima issue being tackled and pros and cons of the nuclear energy?

Come and ask Helen Caldicott, who the Smithsonian calls one of the most influential women of the 20th century at a Google+ Hangout.

It's happening on Tuesday, November 5, at 13:00 GMT.

In one of her recent articles on, Helen Caldicott wrote:

“As I contemplate the future at Fukushima, it seems that the escape of radiation is virtually unstoppable. The levels of radiation in buildings 1, 2 and 3 are now so high that no human can enter or get close to the molten cores. It will therefore be impossible to remove these cores for hundreds of years if ever.”

She believes that one of the steps Japanese government should take to prevent worst case consequences is to cancel the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Join the conversation and learn more about her take on nuclear energy issues.

Actually met this incredible lady in Princeton at age 12 back in 73 at a symposium. First time I was made aware of the dangers of the nuclear industry. Her insight and passion should be heard by all the world, but I really think our goose has been cooked by fukushima. Do yourself a favor and become informed.
