The Two Most Dangerous Places in the World

What do Ukraine and Southern California have in common?

Steve Chapple, a Samuel Lawrence Foundation senior fellow, connects the dots in an article this month beneath the headline, “The Two Most Dangerous Places in the World: Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine and San Onofre, California?”

You’ll want to read every word of this very readable story, which bobs and weaves across the globe from one nuclear disaster site to another.

“As nuclear power raises its rather ugly head from a long and expensive slumber, the climate crisis, politicians and tax-payer money step in to breathe new life into the bumbling Old Geezer,” Chapple writes.

In addition to his work with us, Chapple is a visiting scholar at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and executive director of the San Diego Unified STEAM Leadership Series.


Coming soon, "Radioactive: The Women of Three Mile Island"

We can’t wait to screen an award-winning, new documentary that explores a culture of gender biases surrounding our nation’s worst nuclear disaster, the partial meltdown at Three Mile Island in 1979.

The film, “Radioactive: The Women of Three Mile Island,” is directed, written and produced by Dr. Heidi Hutner, professor of Literature, Sustainability, Women’s and Gender Studies at Stony Brook University, where her work explores the history of nuclear power.

Earlier this month, Dr. Hutner’s film won the Audience Award for Best Film at the Dances With Films Festival in Los Angeles.

We are making arrangements to screen the film at a public event early in 2023. Stay tuned!

For now, check out the Radioactive trailer.
