Nuclear Energy Conference Call for FAS Members

One of the benefits of being an FAS member is gaining access to special events, like conference calls, webcasts, and live chats, with FAS experts. I cordially invite FAS Members to a conference call this Thursday, November 4, 2010, at 2:00 PM EDT. The launching off point will be my forthcoming article in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, titled, "Next customer, please: The risk in conventional arms sales along with nuclear energy deals."

The conference call will last 45 minutes, with 30 minutes of Q&A. You may submit questions for the conference call in advance by replying to this post.
