Abstract: The May, 1981 Southern New Brunswick Nuclear News (SNBNN) includes a reflection on a Fredericton meeting dealing with the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station. Two other articles argue that alternate energy sources can be economically competitive with present energy sources. The SNBNN is published by the Maritime Energy Coalition, and includes announcements of upcoming events as well as lead articles.
The editorial of SNBNN #17 is a call for a grassroots movement to protest the proposals for a second nuclear reactor at Point Lepreau. Believing that effective and massive opposition can be directed against both the present reactor and plans to construct a second one, the author outlines numerous ways that the protest can be carried out. Some of the activities proposed are film nights, regional information meetings, newspaper ads and interviews, hearings into the safety of Point Lepreau and a province-wide petition, which will be getting underway soon.
SNBNN also presents summaries of current books and articles related to energy. Featured in this issue are "Solar Transitions" (by Barry Commoner) and an article on a cleaner method of producing electricity from coal.
