Helen Caldicott (left) is a Australian physician who moved to Boston in late seventies. She left medicine in 1980 in order to campaign against nuclear weapons, and according to Wikipedia, currently travels between the United States and Australia, lecturing against nuclear power.

Caldicott was in Charlottesville on September 30 to give a talk, sponsored by the Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice, Sierra Club of the Piedmont, and People Allied for Clean Energy. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is currently deciding whether or not to expand the nuclear power plant at North Anna on Lake Louise.

Caldicott’s latest book is called Nuclear Power is Not the Answer To Global Warming or Anything Else.
